Hopkins social services funding schedule 2014

Posted by Scott Tibbs at 4:00 AM (#)

City government has released the schedule for the Jack Hopkins social services funding program. The application deadline for organizations that want a grant is March 31. The schedule is as follows:

  • Invited Agencies Present Applications -- Thursday, May 08, 2014, 5:30pm, Council Chambers
  • Committee recommends allocation of funds -- Thursday, May 22, 2014, 5:30pm, Council Chambers
  • City Council Acts on the recommendations -- Wednesday, June 18 2014, 7:30pm, Council Chambers

Planned Parenthood has applied for a handout from the Hopkins fund almost every year since 1999. The two exceptions were 2000 (when they got a handout from the Community Development Block grants instead) and 2009. I've been lobbying against funding Planned Parenthood for fifteen years, with no success other than when the funding request was surprisingly denied in 2012.

I am sure they will apply again this year. Hopefully they will not get funding, but I am not expecting the Democrats to do the right thing. This is and has always been nothing more than a political endorsement.
