Funding proposal for Streets Alive Mission outreach programming to go to city council

Additional funding for Streets Alive Mission and its outreach programming may be made available. Members of the Cultural SPC met on Thursday to figure out if the money should be divvied out to the Christian organization. Officials with the city told us what the funds would go toward should it be approved.

“Admin expenses, wages and benefits, project delivery expenses, direct client expenses. The total budget for the term that we’re looking at, which would be a 13 month term to start, would be just under $400,000, which would actually be $368,920 on an annual basis. The activities that would be included in the agreement are primarily directed towards outreach to encampments within the city. Since we’ve seen that as a primary concern that’s coming forward,” says Matthew Pitcher, the A/CSD Operations Manager for the city.

Members of the Cultural SPC voted to bring forward the funding proposal to council at a later date.
