Overview The Civic Improvement Commission is the advisory body to the City Council on social services. Specifically, the CIC is responsible for making recommendations to the City Council on allocating the City’s social service sub-grant funds to qualified social service agencies via a competitive application process. The Commission reviews sub-grant requests, holds public hearings, and makes funding recommendations to the City Council. The City Council, in turn, provides authorization for social service sub-grant allocations in the two-year budget cycle approval process.
• The Civic Improvement Commission discourages applications from agencies whose programs are available to only specific ethnic groups or serve only clients of a particular national origin.
• The Civic Improvement Commission generally does not recommend new funding for agencies whose programs are duplicative of currently funded programs.
• Preference will be given to programs that meet the needs of Campbell residents and which are not already being provided by the City through an existing program or service.
