City Of Chula Vista Chosen For Cities Of Service Leadership Grant
 
The City of Chula Vista received one of ten coveted Cities of Service Leadership Grants from the Rockefeller Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies as was announced yesterday in New York City.

Chula Vista will receive a $200,000 two-year grant to hire a Chief Service Officer. This position will be dedicated to developing and implementing a civic engagement program in two priority areas: career education and public wellness. The goal of the detailed citywide plan is to increase volunteerism and engage residents to address and impact areas of greatest local need.

“As Chula Vista approaches its Centennial in November 2011, our involvement with Cities of Services is a perfect opportunity for residents to celebrate our city with a renewed sense of pride,” said Mayor Cheryl Cox. “We plan strategically to enhance the value of our community by making lasting changes and solving some of our city’s most pressing challenges through service.”

The Chief Service Officer will report directly to Mayor Cox and is expected to begin work by September.

Cities of Service is a bipartisan coalition of mayors from across the country, representing more than 46 million Americans in 100 cities, dedicated to engaging more residents in service and channeling volunteers towards civic engagement.

Other cities receiving the honor are Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Baltimore, MD; Baton Rouge, LA; Houston, TX; Little Rock, AK; Orlando, FL; Pittsburgh, PA; and Richmond, VA.
