Zephyrhills finalizes partnership for homeless grant

ZEPHYRHILLS

The city council gave final approval Monday to partnering with Chancey Road Christian Church for an application for state funds to help the homeless.

The state normally administers the grant money early in the year, but the availability of additional funds prompted officials to reopen the application window for a short period, City Manager Jim Drumm said.

A handful of potential partners expressed interest, but only Chancey Road submitted an application, he added.

Should the city win the grant, Chancey Road will pair up with the nonprofit Samaritan Project, which will administer grant funds for expenses such as rent and utility payments. Drumm told the council the city may have to provide a loan to cover initial costs but will get the money back when the state reimburses program expenses.

The council also made final a $1 million contract with the Pillar Construction Group of Clermont for a renovation project on the city's Sixth Avenue fire station.
