Online applications for three grant programs are available for non-profit organizations in Elk Grove.
Last year, Elk Grove provided nearly $400,000 in grant funding to support non-profit organizations during a great time of need. As demand for services continues to grow with the ongoing pandemic, the city remains committed to supporting local groups.
The city’s Community Development Block Grant goes toward public service activities, housing and facility improvements that benefit low-income earners and is partially backed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. For nearly two decades, the city of Elk Grove has advocated and financially backed senior and youth programs, housing assistance and accessibility improvements for residents most in need.
The Community Service Grant is local and also serves Elk Grove residents through senior meals, food banks, staffing for youth program, emergency utility assistance and other programs. Non-profits can apply for up to $100,000 in these funds.
The application deadline for both of these grants is mid-February.
In addition, the city is also offering the Event Sponsorship Grant Program to back events hosted in the city. Non-profits are eligible for cash, facility use and other services that help their events run smoothly. Events can be in-person or virtual and occur between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022. The deadline is Feb. 26.
If you would like to learn more, the city is hosting a webinar Jan. 26. Community feedback on programming, services and activities is also welcome.
Grant funding will be awarded for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
