Community Development Block Grant
The City of Rocklin receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the form of Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) each year. The funds are used, in part, to assist residents with securing decent housing, benefit the elderly, and expand economic opportunities for those of low and moderate incomes.
In April of 2020, the Rocklin City Council resolved to award a total of approximately $42,000 in CDBG funds for Fiscal Year 2020/2021 to four local non-profit organizations serving the people of Rocklin. The four organizations who will receive funding include: The Salvation Army, Seniors First, Stand Up Placer, and Foothills Habitat for Humanity.
The City of Rocklin is currently planning for the use of fiscal year 2021-22 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funds. The City has yet to be notified of its 2021-22 award. The City expects to receive an amount roughly equal to the 2020-21 award of $279,000. The City of Rocklin is required to prepare an Annual Action Plan which provides information on the needs of low- and moderate-income residents and eligible target areas of the City during the period between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. The Plan also describes the activities that the City will undertake to meet those needs with the limited funding. Should the actual award amount differ from the current estimate, the City will make proportional adjustments to all areas of allocation.

Approximately 350 meals are served each month at the Rocklin Café, which is located in an easily accessible location at the Rolling Oaks Apartments.
PLEASE NOTE: Seniors First is concerned about what the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) could mean for the senior community we serve and has made the decision to temporarily close our congregate Senior Cafés as a precautionary measure effective Tuesday, March 10, 2020 for dine-in services.
While the community cafés will be closed for meal service, we will continue to provide your daily meals on a take-out basis. You may stop by your regular café location to pick up a meal to take home. (Please reserve your meal 24 hours in advance). Seniors First is also still offering meal delivery services through Meals on Wheels.
The safety of our clients and volunteers remains our highest priority. We will continue to monitor news and information from the experts in disease control and will resume café meal services when we feel it is safe to do so.
