The online application period for four City grant programs supporting local nonprofit organizations will open this Friday, January 14, for funding allocated in next fiscal year (FY 2022-23). Access the applications. 

Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Nonprofit Grants, and Community Service Grants (CSG) offer funding for community service programs. The CDBG program funds public service activities, housing programs, and public facility improvements that benefit low-income Elk Grove residents. The program is supported by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Since 2003, the City has used CDBG funds to support senior and youth programs, upgrade nonprofit facilities, run housing programs, and complete accessibility improvements throughout the City, among other activities.

With funding made available through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), the ARPA Nonprofit Grant program offers limited, one-time funding to support organizations, programs, and activities that benefit Elk Grove residents disparately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic effects. Eligible activities include those such as implementation of prevention or mitigation measures to contain the spread of the virus, new programs designed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and programs designed to serve a population disparately impacted by the public health emergency and its economic impacts, such as lower-income households.

The CSG program is a local grant program that funds a variety of activities serving Elk Grove residents. Funding from this program has provided senior meals and food for the Food Bank, staffing support for senior and youth programs, emergency funding for utility assistance, and other activities. Nonprofits can apply for up to $100,000 in CSG funds.

CDBG, ARPA, and CSG grant applications will be due on February 15.
