City asks for proposals for social services projects

The city of Davis expects to distribute more than $800,000 to help local groups provide affordable housing and social services to low- and moderate-income Davis residents in the coming year thanks to Davis’ share of federal Community Development Block Grant and Housing Investment Partnerships programs.

The funds are provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Department and are awarded by the city to local nonprofit organizations that deliver critically needed services such as meals, shelter, transportation, elder care services and health care to low-income residents.

“These funds help us provide our local services a safety net,” said Danielle Foster, housing and human services superintendent in the city manager’s office. “They make all the difference in the world to local groups that struggle to serve our lowest income residents.”

The city expects to receive approximately $500,000 in CDBG and $300,000 in HOME funds for the fiscal year 2014-15. These funds can be used for affordable housing and other community development activities, for vital public service projects and for removal of architectural barriers. Organizations that have received funding in the past include Davis Community Meals, Citizens Who Care, Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee, Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center and CommuniCare Health Centers.

Representatives of local nonprofit groups interested in submitting a grant application are encouraged to attend the applicant workshop hosted by the city of Davis at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, in the Veterans’ Memorial Center Game Room, 203 E. 14th St. The workshop is expected to last two hours.

Grant applications are due to the city by 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3. The city’s Social Services Commission will hear applicant presentations in March and in April the City Council is expected to decide which groups will receive grants. Applications can be downloaded from the city’s website at www.cityofdavis.org.
