Northern California Community Loan Fund (NCCLF) provides technical assistance, grants, and low-interest loans for facility projects by Bay Area organizations including arts organizations. In 2003 and 2004, the Foundation awarded NCCLF a total of $3.5 million to provide individual technical assistance and grants to performing arts facility projects. This Hewlett Foundation-funded initiative, with the counsel of a thirteen-member advisory committee, awarded $3.2 million in grants to eighteen facility projects in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, Vallejo, and Sonoma. The balance was allocated for the administrative costs to design and implement the program. While the funds have been expended, the facility projects continue to benefit from technical assistance that NCCLF provides as they seek to maintain and operate their buildings efficiently. With supplemental funding to 2006-8108 NCCLF will be able to continue providing valuable technical assistance to Hewlett grantees considering or undertaking new capital projects.
