County Announces Nonprofit Grant Recipients
A total of $1 million in CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds will be distributed to several Stanislaus County nonprofit organizations by early 2022.
A total of $1 million in CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds was approved for distribution to approved Stanislaus County nonprofit organizations by the Board of Supervisors on November 23rd. This funding will assist critical nonprofit work throughout Stanislaus County. Priority was given to nonprofits that did not receive funding from the 2020 Nonprofit Support Grant Program, as well as nonprofits that serve veterans and seniors, and local nonprofit organizations that are new to the community.
"Our County provides a variety of community-centered causes and nonprofits." said Stanislaus County Board Chairman, Vito Chiesa. "It's more important now than ever that we support the work of nonprofits and I'm proud of our Board for recognizing that with a new round of grant funding."
The Stanislaus Community Foundation was contracted to manage the grant application and review process on behalf of Stanislaus County. The Foundation received more than 70 applications from nonprofits that indicated a need for support. The efforts of nonprofits that have continued serving local residents, even through the pandemic, is remarkable. Most have struggled financially due to impacts of COVID-19.
Requests totaling approximately $4.5 million were received, far exceeding the $1 million available to award. This was a competitive process and applications were prioritized based on the approved tiers and for organizations that demonstrated the greatest financial need and impact of COVID-19 on their operations.
