Recognizing the important services provided by all local non-profit organizations, the City Council has established the Community Grant Program to help fund community programs and projects. The grant program will provide a variety of cash contributions to qualified non-profit organizations that demonstrate a strong ability to provide beneficial services to Sonoma residents with a priority given to programs that focus on:

* Youth, Adult or Senior Services
* Community Engagement & Civic Activities
   Cultural & Arts
* Environment & Green Initiatives

It is the Council’s intention to distribute the Community Fund grants to a wide span of agencies to benefit the greater good.  While it is understood that there may not be sufficient dollars to fund all agencies and requests, the format of this grant program will allow reconsideration each year for funding of local organizations and give greater opportunity to all applicants.  Other requests for programs that address needs outside these core areas may be considered on a case-by-case basis, as funding allows.  Priority areas are subject to review, update and/ or ratification annually during Council Goal-Setting process.
