Award Description: Community Development Block Grant funds are used primarily for low income residents of Kitsap County for housing rehabilitation, capital development activities, economic development activities, public service activities, and administration. Recovery projects selected will provide 10 permanent full-time and 20 temporary jobs. Services will be provided to low income residents who have been homeless, suffer mental illness and/or disabilities. Funding helps avoid reduction in services due to the economy, enabling a shelter to continue to serve homeless men; an advocate to continue services for sexually abused children. A rehabilitation of a facility will serve low income developmentally disabled adults; low income residents will be provided weatherization and minor home repair; and paving of a new parking lot will serve indivudals with mental illness for a new 16 bed inpatient mental health facility.
Project Description: Recovery projects selected have provided 3 jobs to-date from sub-awards receiving below $25,000. Of those jobs, 53 intake services were given to low income residents who have been homeless, suffer mental illness and/or disabilities, with 5 new spaces filled at the Max Hale Center. Funding avoided reduction in case management that provided services to 56 men and 1 child due to the economy, enabling a shelter to continue to serve homeless men. 1 Child and Family Advocate continued child abuse intervention services to 59 children. Executing subrecipient agreements has been the primary focus of this reporting period, as CDBG-R funding was not received until 08/26/2009. With completion of agency agreements of sub-awards over $25,000, a rehabilitation of a facility which serves low income developmentally disabled adults will be allowed a kitchen remodel; low income residents of single family homes will be provided weatherization and minor home repair; and paving of a new parking lot will serve indivudals with mental illness from construction of a new 16 bed inpatient mental health facility.
