Grants to California nonprofit organization and local government agencies in eligible regions 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 CDBG program is designed to expand opportunities for low-income Elk Grove residents by increasing housing and economic development opportunities, providing public services, improving public facilities, and making neighborhood improvements. Successful applications will address the housing and community development needs presented in the City of Elk Grove’s CDBG Consolidated Plan.
