SANTA BARBARA — The city of Santa Barbara is soliciting proposals from eligible applicants for Community Development Block Grant and Human Service Programs.
There is approximately $1.5 million available in the grants to support local nonprofit organizations that provide social services to individuals or families or support community development activities such as rehabilitation, infrastructure improvements or economic development.
All grants aim to benefit low- and moderate-income residents of Santa Barbara.
In order to submit an application, a representative of each potential applicant organization is required to attend a mandatory Application Workshop from 2:30 to 4 p.m. today on GoToWebinar.
