Seaside seeks grant for new food bank

Seaside is seeking funding for the relocation of the South County Community Food Bank.

The city will try to secure funding for the relocation of the food bank through a grant administered by the Oregon Business Development Department and funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Development.

The city’s application will seek $1.5 million to fund a range of activities, including the purchase of the building, the engineering and design of the building’s improvements, construction of those improvements, legal and administrative costs and relocation costs for M&F Plumbing.

Approximately $12 million is available statewide for projects in rural cities and counties in this fiscal year, and the funds must be used for projects that benefit only low- or moderate-income people.
