Pittsfield Seeks Proposals for Human Services Funding

Print Story | Email Story

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city announced that applications are now available for human services funding to benefit Pittsfield residents. Funding is for the program year July 1 to June 30, 2014.

The city undertakes an annual process through its Human Services Advisory Council, an 11-member volunteer committee that reviews the proposals and submits its recommendations to the mayor.  Last year's recommendations resulted in 29 human service programs receiving a total of $284,000 from the city's general fund and from the federal Community Development Block Grant program. The consumers assisted with those funds ranged from infants to the elderly.
 
In addition to submitting a written proposal, applicants will be invited to come before the HSAC to make a presentation in April that will be televised locally. 
 
Applications can be obtained at the Pittsfield Deptartment of Community Development at City Hall or by email to rcornwell@pittsfieldch.com. The application's due date is March 1.  For more information, contact the community development department at 413-499-9450.
