Human Service Grant recommendations for FY 2013/14. Discussion of setting a $100,000 cap on grants and $70,000 gap between budget and requests, especially top two rated organizations: Abode and SAVE. Proponents indicated that some of the funds from dissolution of Redevelopment could be used for this purpose.
