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 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.
