Grace Marketplace Waits For Funds From the City and County


Since October, Grace Marketplace has continued to provide services to the homeless and pay for its staffing while waiting for the city of Gainesville and Alachua County to provide reimbursements. Grace Marketplace is currently working on a new agreement with the city on how the homeless shelter will receive its funding. As of now, the shelter only has a verbal agreement from the city and county that the balance for the previous months will roll over to the balance in the new agreement. It costs $6,319.50 to keep the pavilion open every month and pay for staffing.
