Goleta Taking Applications for 2019-20 Grant Programs

The city of Goleta is now accepting applications for grant funding for the 2019-20 fiscal year. The city has up to $100,000 to award for both the Goleta City Grant Program and Community Development Block Grant Program combined.

Non-profit organizations and governmental agencies are urged to apply.

Applications for grant funding are available beginning Dec. 17 and close at 5 p.m. Jan. 28. For the first time, applicants will be using ZoomGrants to apply. Paper applications will not be accepted.

Through the Goleta City Grant Program, the city awards grants of up to $5,000 for civic services, community projects, and public services that benefit residents of Goleta. Examples of services and activities eligible to apply include: cultural activities, educational programs and special events.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Organizations competitive for CDBG funding may receive a minimum of $5,000 per grant.

CDBG funds are intended to help communities accomplish HUD's overall goals, including the provision of services that benefit low- and moderate-income community members. Goleta uses its CDBG funding allocation to provide grants to organizations that help achieve this goal.

Those interested can apply through ZoomGrants for the Goleta City Grant Program and the Community Development Block Grant.

More information and program guidelines are at https://tinyurl.com/goletagrants. For questions contact Dana Grossi at 805-562-5507 or email [email protected]
The City Council will award the grants at a meeting in the spring.

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!
