Carlsbad awards $69K in CDBG grants to 12 nonprofits

The city of Carlsbad has awarded $69,000 in Community Development Block Grants (CDBGs) to 12 nonprofit organizations to help lower-income residents meet their needs for housing, nutrition, health and employment.

Meals on Wheels Meal Delivery Service; Catholic Charities, La Posada de Guadalupe Homeless Shelter; and Community Resource Center Homeless Prevention and Intervention will each be receiving $8,000.

The Boys and Girls Club Teen Scene Program; Brother Benno Center; Casa de Amparo Food Program for Neglected and Abused Children; Interfaith Community Services Housing and General Assistance; North County Community Services Food Bank; the Angel’s Depot Seniors Meal Program; the Women’s Resource Center, Alternatives to Abuse Shelter; YMCA OZ Youth Shelter for troubled youths; and the North County Solutions for Change for employment-related training will each get $5,000.

CDBGs are part of a federal program that distributes money to eligible cities and counties so they can improve life for lower income families. The grant amounts are determined by a formula and vary from year to year.

Carlsbad applies the grants to projects and services that directly benefit lower income residents.

Social service organizations apply for the grants and a city selection committee recommends the best candidates to the city. Staff then recommends a list of recipients to the City Council, which makes a final decision.
