Selection Criteria

The Menifee Citizens Advisory Committee (MCAC) will review the public services applications and make a recommendation to City Council who will select Public Services Grantees and allocate funds for public services activities. The recommendations and selection will be based on the following criteria:

  • Consistency of service activity with national objectives and federal requirements;
  • Consistency of service activity with the goals, objectives, and strategies of the 5-year Consolidated Plan;
  • Breadth and depth of service activity, including number of low- and moderate- income persons served or benefitted;
