County handing out grants to address six pressing needs
The Solano County Administrator’s Office has released a request for proposals for annual grants of up to $50,000 per grant to address the six most pressing needs in Solano County, officials announced Monday.
All projects proposed for the Annual Grants Fund must address one or more of the six most pressing needs in the county. A total of $250,000 is available for July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. The limit per annual grant is $50,000.
Proposals will be accepted from nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations and government entities.
The Solano County Board of Supervisors created the fund after embarking on a year-long assessment process, which included looking at community data, talking to community leaders, and conducting a community survey with residents.
The board identified the top six human services needs in the county: Mental health, housing, homelessness, early education, youth development and safe and stable environments for children.
A mandatory proposers’ workshop will be held at 3 p.m., Feb. 10 at the County Events Center, located at 601 Texas St., in Fairfield, conference room A.
Proposals are due by 5 p.m., March 6.
