    File: Community Food BankPima County’s Community Development and Neighborhood Conservation Department will now accept pre-applications for its Outside Agency (OA) Program from qualified organizations willing to provide support to economically disadvantaged County residents and communities, members of at-risk groups or people who live in rural areas.

    Last year, the Pima County Board of Supervisors approved $3,512,786 in Outside Agency funding. Grants cover one fiscal year, with the potential for a second year. The Supervisors also approved $1,336,386 in OA funding for General Services.

    Agencies interested in participating in the OA Program must submit a pre-application by Nov. 30 to be considered. CDNC staffers will review the pre-applications to determine whether they meet County requirements for funding. Agencies that have their pre-application approved will be notified via ZoomGrants. The deadline to submit full applications is January 31, 2018. Applications for the 2018-2019 OA and ESG program now are available online

    Funding falls into five service categories: Community Services, Emergency Food and Clothing, Senior Support, Support services, Shelter and Domestic Violence Service and Youth, Young Adults and Family Support. The County’s Outside Agency Citizen Review Committee will recommend funding amounts for each category based on its determination of community needs.

    “We look forward to working with local agencies that provide critical services to Pima County residents,” Program Manager Ana Basurto said. “Outside agency funding helps complement existing County services and help those organizations carry out their missions.”

    CDNC will host a two workshops to help clarify program requirements, answer prospective applicants’ questions and provide up-to-date information. Both sessions will take place at the Pima County Housing Center, 801 W. Congress St. The first will take place Monday, November 6 from 10 a.m. to noon; the second on Wednesday, November 8 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Attendance is encouraged, but not required.
