This capstone project was implemented by the Community and Economic Development department of the City of Pacific Grove. The social problem is the high rate of home deterioration among low-income seniors. In order to address this issue, an outreach event was implemented to advertise the Housing Rehabilitation Loan program and organizations with similar target populations. The purpose of this event was to advertise local resources to the public. The implementation method included contacting agencies offering similar programs, finding a venue, and sending out surveys to invited agencies. Findings from the survey remain inconclusive due to a lack of responses from agencies. Going forward, the City should send out these surveys again to reach a conclusion.
