Four different organizations submitted applications for the Community Development Block Grant, requesting a total of $85,000 towards programs and services.

The city only had $14,890 available, and followed the grant committee’s recommendation to split the available funds between the two organizations that needed the money most, People’s Self-Help Housing and the Carpinteria Boys & Girls Club. Each organization will receive $7,445 towards its programming.
