Small Business Development/New Job Creation: Support will be given for business development, i.e., training and technical assistance.
Workforce Development/Training: Target needed programs that strengthen the local workforce.
Quality of Life (i.e., Health, Land Use, Infrastructure, Senior Citizens): Expanding access to services and resources that enhance the quality of life for Norco residents.
Youth Opportunity (i.e., Youth Participation/Youth Job Related Activities): Youth community involvement, youth-adult partnerships, youth leadership, and youth empowerment activities all beneficially conspire to make young people participants in the life of the community rather than merely spectators or recipients of services.
