The City partnered with a number of local nonprofit agencies to get these funds to the community as quickly and efficiently as possible. Together, these agencies deployed grants totaling more than $22 million to more than 10,000 grant recipients. These partners distributed 99.7% of the grant funds authorized by Mayor and Council.
