NORWALK – The city of Norwalk has been awarded a $70,000 grant that will be used to help prevent and combat homelessness in the city.
The grant, which is funded by Los Angeles County and administered by the Home for Good Funders Collaborative, will fund the cost of a consultant and Norwalk’s administrative overhead related to plan development.
At its meeting Tuesday, the City Council prolonged its decision on hiring LeSar Development Consultants to help develop the homeless plan. In its bid, LeSar proposed meetings with “City Council, stakeholders, and the Social Service Commission to gain community input on concerns and solutions before drafting the plan for City Council consideration.”
Council will review the item again at its next scheduled meeting, which falls on Dec. 19.
Under terms of the grant, a final plan must be adopted by June 30, 2018.
