$8 Million in Grants to Be Distributed
The City Council will decide Monday how it will distribute $8 million in federal community development block grant funds.
The city’s Human Relations Commission evaluated requests for funding from dozens of community groups and has recommended that the biggest chunk--$250,000--go to the Santa Ana Police Department for its helicopter program.
The commission also suggested the city dedicate $199,000 for Santa Ana’s P.R.I.D.E. program, which educates children in local schools about the danger of joining a gang.
The council meets at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 22 Civic Center Plaza. Information: (714) 647-6900.
