Each year the City of San Mateo prepares an Annual Action Plan that identifies activities that are important to the San Mateo community and can be funded with federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. Planning is taking place for a new five year Consolidated Plan for 2018-23 as well as the Action plan for 2018-19. CDBG has several eligible funding categories including public service grants to non-profit agencies, affordable housing, and community development activities.
We are asking the community to identify the highest priority needs in our city’s most vulnerable neighborhoods. You are part of that process and the Community Relations Commission would like to hear from you about what you think are the most important needs in the community. If you are unable to attend the Community Needs Workshop on November 18, please complete the online survey. The Commission will take feedback from the workshop on November 1 as well as the coming workshop on November 18 and all survey responses to identify priorities for funding in the coming years.
For more information, or if any issues arise with the survey, call the Neighborhood Improvement and Housing Division at 522-7229 or email email@example.com

We are excited to welcome two new HANCSM board members: Noelia Corzo and Bennito Angeles.
Bennito Angeles has lived in North Central for over 20 years and has been active with HANCSM for over one decade! He coaches soccer and you will often find him on the King Center field. He’s a “workaholic” and runs a house-cleaning business that serves many neighborhoods in our county. His priority on the board is to educate neighbors about keeping our streets clean.
Noelia Corzo was born and raised in North Central. She is a graduate of our local public schools and is an involved PTA mom at Fiesta Gardens where her son attends school. Noelia has been life-long community advocate for social justice and she works as a social worker, serving the special needs community in San Mateo County. Her goal on the HANCSM board is to increase community engagement and participation to improve our schools and neighborhood. (Also you will see her name on the Nov. 7th ballot).
