Grants to California nonprofit community partners in eligible locations to improve organizational capacity. Funding is intended to offset expenses related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The goal of funding is to ensure that agencies are able to provide services to individuals who have been heavily impacted by the health crisis. Programs must benefit Santa Cruz County.

The priority recipients will be agencies serving individuals most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on ensuring those most at risk for poor health outcomes related to the pandemic have equitable access to resources, services, and information. The purpose of these grants is to ensure those most impacted by COVID-19 have access to resources to support them during the pandemic. 

The CARES Act grant funds may only be used to reimburse specific expenses. The purpose of the Community Partner Grants is to cover eligible expenses occurring between March 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The following are the expense types that are eligible for this grant opportunity.

  1. Expenses for communication and enforcement by State, territorial, local, and Tribal governments of public health orders related to COVID-19.
  2. Expenses for acquisition and distribution of medical and protective supplies, including sanitizing products and personal protective equipment.
  3. Expenses for disinfection of facilities in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
  4. Expenses for technical assistance related to mitigation of COVID-19
  5. Expenses for public safety measures undertaken in response to COVID-19.
  6. Payroll expenses employees whose services are substantially dedicated to mitigating or responding to the COVID19 public health emergency.
  7. Expenses of actions to facilitate compliance with COVID-19-related public health measures
  8. Other expenses outlined by the Department of Treasury guidelines.

The intent of the Community Partners Capacity grants is to support organizational capacity necessary to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic rather than specific client costs for basic needs. Although all eligible expenses will be considered, agencies are encouraged to apply for reimbursement costs noted above, that impact agency capacity.
