For Immediate Release

Funding Available for Organizations Serving Low and Moderate Income Households and Special Needs Populations in Redwood City

Redwood City, CA - January 5, 2006 - The City of Redwood City is seeking proposals from organizations to provide certain community programs for the residents of Redwood City. These programs include affordable housing, non-housing community development activities, economic development activities which create jobs, and supportive service programs. The available funding is for the 2006-2007 program year.

An estimated $1.3 million in funding for such programs is available, which comes from three sources: Community Development Block Grant funds; HOME Investment Partnership funds (both from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development); and the Human Services Financial Assistance Program (from the City of Redwood City, subject to approval of the City’s 2006-2007 budget).

The City will allocate these funds to organizations providing activities which meet mutual City and local community goals. The objective is to provide services to assist those Redwood City residents with the greatest need to move toward self-sufficiency and reduce the need for ongoing governmental assistance, including permanent affordable housing and job training and creation.

Those organizations wishing to submit proposals must attend one of the scheduled technical assistance workshops. They are:

  • Wednesday, January 11, 2006 at 2:00 pm

and

  • Friday, January 13, 2006 at 10:00 am

Each workshop will be held in the City Council chambers at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City, and will last approximately 1.5 hours. Attendance at one of these workshops is mandatory, as updated information will be presented on the City’s plans for addressing housing and supportive services needs in light of budget reductions. Applications will not be accepted from organizations that do not attend one of these workshops.

Complete information is available online. Applications for funding are available only at one of the mandatory technical workshops.
