Volunteer fire departments, emergency medical services, school districts, libraries, civic groups, local governments and nonprofit organizations may apply for the grants.
Social service projects and limited use facilities – such as food pantries, transitional housing and substance abuse facilities – are not eligible for funding.
Emphasis will be placed on projects that include energy efficiency and water conservation, education, volunteer fire departments, and public safety organizations that have been impacted by wildfires and the extreme drought conditions.
Applicants requesting $5,000 or more in grant funding must have at least 20 percent in matching funds. Applicants may request as much as $50,000 from CDPP grants. Approved grant applicants may not always receive the level of funding requested.
