Grants to California nonprofit organizations and local government agencies in eligible locations for projects that benefit local residents. Funding is intended for programs that provide services to community residents or for activities that specifically benefit underserved communities. Grants are available to organizations that serve the residents of Elk Grove.

Program Types:

  • The Community Service Grant (CSG): The program is designed to fund programs and activities that benefit the City of Elk Grove residents.
  • The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG): Eligible activities must benefit primarily low-income areas or low-income persons/households who are Elk Grove residents. The City of Elk Grove’s CDBG program is designed to expand opportunities for low-income Elk Grove residents by fostering affordable housing, expanding homeless housing and services,  providing social services, improving accessibility, and constructing or upgrading public facilities.

A higher percentage of the grant requests must be for program costs as opposed to administrative and agency overhead.
