Grants are available to fund current and new public services in the areas of employment, childcare, health and welfare, education, substance abuse prevention and energy conservation. The service proposed must be a new service or a measurable increase in the existing level of service provided by the government in the prior 12 months.

Preference will be given to projects that address at least one of the following priorities:

1. Programs or projects serving low and moderate-income persons and communities in the identified community conservation areas
2. Programs focused on children, youth and families with particular emphasis on serving residents of multi-family rental properties including:
a) Community-based centers that provide a wide array of services
b) Youth risk reduction activities
3. Job training, literacy training—financial and skills-based
4. Transportation linkages
5. Services and adult education for emerging immigrant populations
6. Activities benefiting people with disabilities and/or senior citizens

The County will also look favorably upon those projects which:
(a) Represent a cooperative effort between the applicant, the community and other private or public partners;
(b) Provide documentation of the applicant’s plan for sustaining the project in the future;
(c) Incorporate the proposed HUD performance measurement indicators into the goals of their project; and
(d) Leverage other resources for support.

Note that abused children, battered spouses, severely disabled adults, homeless persons, illiterate adults, persons with AIDS, migrant farm workers as well as the elderly are the presumed target population, as these populations are often of low to moderate income.
