Workshops Help Groups Get Grants

November 06, 2000|PAUL M. ANDERSON

Nonprofit organizations can get assistance filling out forms to qualify for federal Community Development Block Grants at city-sponsored workshops Wednesday and Nov. 14.

City officials will be on hand on both dates to help community leaders fill out the forms from 9 a.m. to noon at City Hall, 2929 Tapo Canyon Road. Organizations interested in applying for the grants must attend one of the workshops to be eligible for the money, officials said.

The funds are usually given to charitable organizations that help the homeless, battered women, troubled youths, people with disabilities and others. City officials expect to receive about $120,000 in block grant funds this year that can be split among local organizations.

The deadline for filing a block grant application is Jan. 5. For more information, call Deborah Konkol at (805) 583-6728.
