The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors listened to a presentation for a grant that would provide thousands of dollars in funding for two Lodi homeless shelters.

The Community Development Department asked the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday to consider allocating $12,000 to the Salvation Army family shelter and $10,000 to Lodi House for women and children, as well as fund several other shelters throughout San Joaquin County from an Emergency Solutions Grant.

The grant is distributed amongst shelters every year by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in order to help individuals and families quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness.

The Community Development Department recommended that the Board of Supervisors allocate $218,743 of grant funding over the 2013-14 fiscal year.

In order to receive funding, shelters must match the amount from a non-federal source.

The Community Development Department recommended that the Salvation Army receive $3,000 less than the $15,000 it requested, and that Lodi House received the amount it requested.

The Board of Supervisors will conduct a final review of the grant during a public hearing May 7, starting at 9 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors' chambers, 44 N. San Joaquin St., sixth floor, Stockton. The plan will then be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on May 15.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
