Technical Assistance for Community Projects
NeighborWorks Umpqua provides rural communities in Southwest Oregon with technical assistance that includes funding community facilities, project management, grant writing and administration.
In 2010 we assisted the City of Roseburg with a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) that enabled Casa de Belen, a homeless teen shelter, to purchase their facility. They are able to apply for additional funding for support and to upgrade their facility.
In 2008 we assisted Umpqua Community Action Network (UCAN) administer a CDBG grant to help build their new facility and warehouse.
NeighborWorks Umpqua is committed to help communities develop projects such as these.
