The City of Goleta is kicking off the season of giving by inviting local organizations to apply for community grants.

Now in its 12th year, the City Council has authorized $20,000 for this program designed to support projects that benefit the Goleta community.

Grants of up to $2,500 are available to outstanding civic and community organizations that enhance the quality of life for Goleta residents. Organizations involved in cultural activities, such as music, art, dance and recreation as well as Goleta-oriented special events and regional projects that are a benefit to Goleta also qualify.

In the previous years, grants have been to the Alzheimer’s Association, Domestic Violence Solutions, Dos Pueblos Little League, Friendship Center Adult Day Care Center, PathPoint and many other worthy programs.

The grant application period opens Dec. 2 and closes Jan. 10. Grant applications will be reviewed by a committee comprised of the mayor and two City of Goleta residents. Their recommendations will be considered at the first City Council meeting in March 2014.

Questions about this program may be directed to Heidi Aten at 805.961.7525 or [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
