Community Resiliency Grants

Seedling growing out of a jar of coins

Back in April, the board carved out 30% of its federal COVID relief funds, $5.8 million, to promote community & economic resiliency. Up to $2 million of that was set aside for a “Community Resiliency Grants” program to help respond to the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic increase resiliency, support recovery, and provide relief. Eligible applicants for the funds included nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses, and special purpose districts, and the one-time grants provided under this program were capped at $100,000 per entity.

At the November 9 board meeting, the board approved the final list of grant recipients, and it really is an impressive list of organizations.

Congratulations to the following district 4 grant recipients:

  • Penn Valley Community Rodeo Association
  • San Juan Ridge Community Library
  • Woolman at Sierra Friends Center
  • Curious Forge
  • Rough and Ready Grange
  • Synergia Learning Center
  • North San Juan Community Center

Many of the other grant recipients serve district 4, even though they are based outside of it, including South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), Bear Yuba Land Trust, and others. I’m grateful for all of these great organizations.
