RENT program offers community grants

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 by Tai Moses

In order to reach vulnerable community members who can benefit from the Relief of Emergency Needs for Tenants (RENT) Assistance Program, the city is partnering “with community-based organizations that have a demonstrated record of success reaching out to focused populations.” The city is making grants ranging from $1,000 to $50,000 to local organizations that meet the eligibility requirements. “Grant applications will be evaluated on the quality of work proposed and the potential impact or outcome of the project, acknowledging barriers that some small organizations face by not having an on-staff grant writer.” The grants will be managed by the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department. The community outreach grant application portal is open until Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 4 p.m. Visit the RENT Community Outreach Grant Dashboard to find the application link, eligibility and timeline, and more details about the program’s goals and background.
