Help of Ojai has long been respected here in the valley, but the many programs it offers the community has not been lost on the county at large. Two recent applications for Community Development Block Grant funds were awarded to Help to total $96,000.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides funding to local communities through the CDBG program for both public service projects and capital projects. Changes in Ventura County procedures for applying for new CDBG funds prompted the Ojai City Council to vote in January to serve as an evaluation committee to make recommendations to the county pertaining to any applications for public service organizations from Ojai.
In previous years, the city was granted money from the county and then the council would vote on award allocations. Under the new system, applications were given directly to Ventura County, with each city holding a public hearing and submitting recommendations for the county to consider during awards.
