Nearly $100,000 in allocations from the county’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Program were approved by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors Tuesday.
The five county supervisors voted unanimously in favor of seven proposals, which came at the recommendation of Supervisor Ron Roberts.
In addition to the allocations, the supervisors approved the establishment of two appropriations to the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program budget, totaling $4,678. Those appropriations were based on the return of unused portions of two previously approved program allocations, one for a total of $10,000 to the Armed Services YMCA San Diego in 2010 and the other for a total of $48,545 to The Alpha Project in 2011.
The nine new allocations approved include nearly $17,000 to the Arc of San Diego, $5,000 to the John Brockington Foundation, $17,500 to the Greater San Diego Tennis Council, $10,000 to the Honorary Deputy Sheriff’s Association, $20,000 to the Phoenix House of San Diego, $20,000 to the San Diego Museum of Art, and $15,000 to the San Diego Sun Yet Sen Chinese School.
Each of the five supervisors has discretion as to recommending where up to $2 million in Neighborhood Reinvestment Program funds go, though they are limited to granting funds to county departments, public agencies, and nonprofit community organizations that serve public purposes.
Grants to nonprofits are limited to capital improvements, equipment, materials, goods or supplies.
The two largest allocations will help pay for the renovation of two dormitory cabins and an admissions building at Phoenix House and the re-installation of the Asian Court, a lighting upgrade and a ceiling refurbishment at San Diego Museum of Art.
