  • Joshua,

    Thanks so much for providing this information. I will be looking at our area (Alameda County) to find out what grant opportunities are available, especially for career pathway projects for high school students.

    Best,

  • Hi Joshua and Sheuba,

    I just saw this today. Is the funding currently available , any changes or restrictions , still available through 2019 (10 years from says presentation done in 2009). Can you direct me to where I might read more about the proposal process , requirements, and any changes.

    I have a loved one recently diagnosed with a brain disorder and taking advantage of Royale/ Santa Ana. So far , so good and with a little acceptance we will as a family journey with the disease not become the disease.

    Have a terrific day! Steve

    Thanks for the presentation and for your help. Have a terrific day! Steve McNally
