The City of Livermore Housing and Human Services Grant program helps fund critical safety net services for low-income community members, including young people, families, unhoused people, community members with disabilities, seniors, and veterans. Housing and Human Services Grants are funded through a combination of federal community development grants and local funds. The annual grant process is stewarded by the Livermore Human Services Commission, which reviews each application and makes funding recommendations every Spring to the Livermore City Council.
