Grants of up to $5,000 to California nonprofit organizations, school districts, tribes, and special districts in eligible regions to help meet the basic needs of local residents who have been affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The purpose of the funding is to provide behavioral health services, basic needs, intervention and prevention of domestic violence or child abuse and neglect, and information and referral for vulnerable populations. Eligible organizations are those that benefit residents of Mendocino County.
The Community Foundation is offering the Safety Net Grant program to meet increased demands for basic needs services due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Grants will be made for the purpose of creating or expanding safety net programs and services to assist individuals who have been affected by COVID-19.
Safety net services are part of the system of care to assist those who have serious problems and no other form of help. For the purpose of this grant program, safety net services include those that provide basic needs (defined as the minimum requirements to sustain a decent quality of life - food, shelter, clothing, necessary household items, communication, sanitation, health, employment, and education) as well as behavioral health services, information and referral, and domestic violence or child abuse and neglect intervention or prevention. At their core, safety net services provide programs and services for vulnerable populations. With the current COVID-19 impacts in Mendocino County, vulnerable populations include individuals in the following categories: over age 65, low-income families and youth; low-access residents; individuals with underlying physical, emotional, or intellectual conditions or disabilities; homeless or housing insecure; Native Americans, Latinx, and other communities of color; veterans; undocumented migrants; LGBTQ; and people who are historically subject to disparate access to opportunities.
