Applications are open for the following:

Funding must go toward community service programs, such as public service, housing, public facility improvements geared toward lower income residents and other community-supportive activities. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development supports the program.
In previous years, Elk Grove funding has backed senior and youth programs.
Organizations that support communities that were disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 can apply for one-time funding through the American Rescue Plan Act, which was passed last year. To qualify, the projects must help mitigate the spread of the virus and address the negative economic impacts some members of the community are experiencing.
The local community grants allows for a number of people-first initiatives across the city of Elk Grove, including senior meals and resources for the Food Bank. The funding also goes toward utility assistance. Grants are limited to $100,000.
Event Sponsorship Grants are also available. The deadline is Feb. 25.
This special funding is set aside for organizations that host in-person or virtual events that provide value to Elk Grove residents. Hosts will get assistance for facility use and in-kind services.
Some funding could be subject to City Council approval through regular budget processes.
