From the City of Pleasanton:
The cities of Livermore and Pleasanton will co-sponsor two application workshops for the following fiscal year 2013-14 grant programs:
City of Livermore Housing and Human Services Grants
City of Pleasanton Housing and Human Services Grants
City of Pleasanton Community Grants – Youth / Civic Arts
The workshops are designed for non-profit organizations that serve Tri-Valley residents. The grant programs offered by the two cities provide funding for a variety of human services, community development, housing, youth, and civic arts projects and programs in the Tri-Valley. Most of the grants are focused on activities that benefit lower income residents.
In the current fiscal year (2012-13), the cities are collectively providing over $1.4 million to projects and programs including: medical visits and health care access for the uninsured; child abuse prevention services; meals and supportive services for seniors; mental health care; substance abuse counseling; domestic violence and homeless shelters; rental assistance for job training participants; fair housing counseling and tenant-landlord services; housing rehabilitation for low income homeowners; community cultural events; art projects and programs; and many more.
City staff will discuss the application processes and distribute application packets at the workshops. Attendance at one of the scheduled workshops is mandatory in order to apply for City of Livermore funding and is strongly encouraged for the City of Pleasanton. Both workshops will be identical in format and content, and it is only necessary to attend one workshop.
The first workshop is slated for Tuesday, December 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Pleasanton City Council Chamber, located at 200 Old Bernal Avenue in Pleasanton. A second workshop will be held on Thursday, December 6 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Livermore City Council Chamber, located at 3575 Pacific Avenue in Livermore.
