Nonprofits and public groups benefiting the Pleasanton and Livermore communities are encouraged to apply for more than $1.4 million in grant funding that will be available in the new fiscal year 2020-21.
Most of the grants are focused on projects benefiting low-income residents, according to the city of Pleasanton, such as health care for the uninsured, domestic violence and homeless shelters, senior meals, substance abuse counseling, and rental assistance for job training participants, as well as community cultural events.
Livermore and Pleasanton grants for $550,473 and $820,819, respectively, will be awarded to organizations that serve Tri-Valley residents in the areas of housing and human services, and $95,000 in community grants for Pleasanton youth programs and civic arts projects are also available. Past grant recipients include CityServe of the Tri-Valley, Open Heart Kitchen, Tri-Valley Haven, Axis Community Health, Sunflower Hill, Hively and the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center.
Attendance at one of the upcoming workshops is required to apply for funding from either city and to receive an application packet. Both workshops are identical in format and content, and applicants only need to attend one of them.
To RSVP for one of the workshops, contact Judy Xavier at 960-4589 or email@example.com. The workshop dates are as follows:
*Dec. 11, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Pleasanton City Council Chamber, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
