This week's virtual community meeting (Tuesday May 26th at 4:30) will highlight the Cortes Community Economic Development Association’s (CCED) project proposals submitted into participatory budgeting selection process for this year's Grant-In-Aid allocations.

Both of the above organizations applied into this year’s participatory budgeting process for the Cortes portion of the SRD’s 2020 Grant-In-Aid program.
