Grants to California nonprofit organizations and local government entities in eligible regions for programs and activities that benefit local low-income residents and residents disproportionately impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Eligible applicants serve residents of the city of Elk Grove.

The City of Elk Grove is accepting applications for the Community Service Grant (CSG), Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Nonprofit Grant programs for the 2022-2023 Fiscal Year. Applicants may apply for any one specific funding source or a combination of the grants using the same application. However, applicants must complete a separate application for each proposed program or project.

Please read the following guidelines before applying for CDBG funding:

  • The CDBG program is designed to expand opportunities for low-income residents by fostering affordable housing, expanding homeless housing and services, providing social services, improving accessibility, and constructing or upgrading public facilities.
  • Eligible activities must benefit primarily low-income areas or low-income persons/households who are Elk Grove residents. Low-income households are defined as those having incomes at or below 80 percent of the area median income, adjusted for household size. The low-income limit for Elk Grove is currently $50,750 a year for a one-person household and $72,500 for a four-person household. This amount may increase or decrease in 2022.
  • Successful applications will address the housing and community development needs presented in the City’s 2020-2025 CDBG Consolidated Plan.
  • Grant recipients will have the role of administering federal grant funds on behalf of the City and shall be required to comply with all applicable federal regulations (24 CFR Part 570) for administration of the CDBG program funding and activities, and this will include, in part: keeping accurate financial records and invoices; documenting the income, race/ethnicity, and demographic characteristics of all persons or households served; and complying with labor standards, environmental, relocation, and fair housing laws; etc.
  • Grant recipients will be required to submit, at a minimum, quarterly activity reports and quarterly payment requests to the City.

Please read the following guidelines before applying for the ARPA Nonprofit Grant funding: 

  • The ARPA program is designed to support organizations, programs, and activities that benefit Elk Grove residents disparately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic effects.
  • These grants are limited, one-time funding designed to respond to the COVID–19 public health emergency and its economic impacts through activities such as implementation of prevention or mitigation measures to contain the spread of the virus and/or new programs designed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic or those designed to serve a population disparately impacted by the public health emergency and its economic impacts, such as lower-income households.
  • Grant recipients will have the role of administering federal grant funds on behalf of the City and shall be required to comply with all applicable federal regulations (31 CFR Part 35) for administration of the ARPA Nonprofit Grant program funding and activities, and this will include, in part: keeping accurate financial records and invoices; and complying with environmental, relocation, and fair housing laws; etc.
  • Grant recipients will be required to submit, at a minimum, quarterly activity reports and payment requests to the City.

Preference may be given to applications for public services funding that document a quantifiable increase in the number of persons to be served, the provision of a new service, or the expansion of an existing service into a new area within the City.
