CITY OF SAN MATEO
NOTICE OF FUNDING AVAILABLE
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT FUNDS
The City of San Mateo is now accepting grant proposals from nonprofit organizations for the provision of human services for the program years of July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016.
The Community Grants Program has four core community needs identified as priorities for funding. These needs are: Basic Human Needs Services, Youth Services, Senior Services, and Affordable Housing Services. Funding is provided through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and is subject to available funds and City budget approval. All grants will be available on an open and competitive basis for eligible programs.
There is approximately $112,000.00 in CDBG funding for this program year, for a maximum of 7 grants providing services addressing the community needs priorities. This would result in annual grant amounts of approximately $16,000.00, with one of those reserved for San Mateo’s Core Service Provider Samaritan House.
Organizations interested in applying for a grant through this RFP process are strongly encouraged to attend the pre-application submittal technical assistance training. Submittals will only be accepted through the on-line application process established with City Data Services. This training is scheduled for January 8, 2014, 10:00am-12pm at the San Mateo Main Library, Oak Room, 55 West 3rd Ave., San Mateo, CA 94403.
Application Deadline: Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, January 24, 2014.
