This is a reminder that applications for the 2020 Community Resiliency and Disaster Preparedness grant program are due by December 16, 2019 by 5:00pm.
Up to $175,000 in total funding is available this year for community projects throughout Mendocino County. The goal of the Community Resiliency and Disaster Preparedness Fund is to support effective, realistic, and coordinated planning, reduce duplication of efforts, and increase the overall effectiveness of disaster preparedness activities in our communities. These efforts can help minimize the impact of disasters on our community and result in saving more lives and safeguarding livelihoods during any disaster situation, enabling our affected neighbors to return to a normal lifestyle.
With the support of the California Fire Foundation we will be awarding up to $175,000. Grants are available in two categories: (1) Small Projects up to $10,000 for Disaster Preparedness and Community Resiliency; and (2) Service Continuity projects up to $20,000 to ensure vulnerable populations have continued access to services throughout a disaster for service providers including community centers, senior centers, family resource centers, and health centers.
