The deadline for submission of applications is 4:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, 2016.
Proposals are requested for activities that promote the positive development of youth, adults and seniors, strengthen the capabilities of families and the self sufficiency of adults, or assist residents in addressing crisis needs.
Eligible categories are as follows:

- Domestic Violence Shelter Services
- Legal Services
- Regional Shelter Services
