Do you run a non-profit organization that benefits Wildomar?
The city of Wildomar is inviting eligible non-profit organizations 501 (c)(3) to submit applications for the Community Development Block Grant funds for the 2014-2015 program year.
"The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federally funded block grant program created by Congress in 1974, with the overall goal to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment primarily for low-mod income persons," according to a statement published on the County of Riverside Economic Development Agency.
The amount of money that Wildomar will be able to award through the program has yet to be determined by the county's EDA.
To be eligible for a CDBG, a non-profit must satisfy one of the following national objectives: provide a benefit to low and moderate income persons, prevent or eliminate slums and blight, or meet other urgent community development needs due to natural disasters or other emergencies.
"We will be looking at projects with a specific benefit to the city," stated an announcement from Janet Morales, administrative assistant for the city.
In order to help local organizations better understand the process of qualifying and applying for a CDBG, the city will host a public forum Oct. 14 at 6 p.m. The event will be held in the City Hall Council Chamber located at 23873 Clinton Keith Rd.
CDBG application packages are available on the city’s website, www.cityofwildomar.org, and are due no later than 5 p.m. Thursday, October 31, 2013 to the following location:
