The City of Goleta is once again inviting community leaders and non-profit organizations to participate in the annual Community Project Grants Program, an initiative to support projects that benefit the Goleta community.

Grants of up to $2,500 are available to outstanding civic and community organizations that enhance the quality of life for Goleta residents.

“This program offers the City a way to recognize and support the non-profit and community-based organizations that serve Goleta,” said Mayor Margaret Connell. “In these difficult times, we must do what we can for these organizations that contribute so much to our community.”

Applications will be accepted from January 3-February 16, 2011, and can be found on the City’s website.

In 2010, the City of Goleta approved grants to the Alzheimer’s Association, Domestic Violence Solutions, Dos Pueblos Little League, Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, Goleta Valley Beautiful, Safety Town, and several other community organizations.

Questions regarding the Community Project Grant Program may be directed to Karen Dorfman, Management Analyst, at (805) 961-7523 or
