Glendale’s Community Revitalization office will conduct a grant application orientation and workshop addressing key elements of the 2016-17 funding cycle; including, the process of applying for Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) and Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) program funds. All interested non-profits are invited to attend the workshop 1 p.m. Sept. 9 in Room B3 (basement level) of Glendale City Hall, 5850 W. Glendale Ave.
