A handful of nonprofits fighting home foreclosures in San Mateo County have a new ally — the County Board of Supervisors.

Despite recently slashing the county budget, the board in late September approved over $100,000 in general fund money to support local nonprofits working to prevent foreclosures in the county, which San Mateo Housing Director Duane Bay said is under-served by larger organizations battling the national crisis.

That money will help groups such as Northern California Urban Development, a nonprofit in East Palo Alto, in part by paying for grant applications for state and federal funds smaller organizations lack the resources and manpower to apply for.
