Grants and loans division changes location

Thursday, June 18, 2015 —The oversight and responsibility of the county’s grants and loans division has been moved from the department of planning and building services to the health and social services department.
    The transition will allow a better fit as services provided by both the Community Development Block Grant programs and the health and social services department are connected.
    According to county administrative officer Richard Egan, the changes stem from the board of supervisors’ direction to move away from the business lending side and toward other activities under the program such as housing assistance, which fits much better under the health and social services department.
