CITY HALLCity officials on Tuesday settled on a five-year plan for spending a projected $30.2 million in federal funding for local social service programs, homeless services and affordable housing offerings.
The plan outlines allocations of the funds, the majority of which are aimed at helping the city's most vulnerable residents, including low-income families, youth, seniors and the homeless.
The funds would support employment services at the city's Verdugo Jobs Center, case management and housing through the city's main homeless service provider, PATH Achieve Glendale, and more affordable housing for low-income residents, according to the plan.
With projections for other funding sources taken into account — including $110 million in federal money for Section 8 rental assistance — the plan's five-year budget reaches $215 million.
Moises Carrillo, senior community development supervisor, said despite the high figure, it "still doesn't meet all of our needs for the city."
