The City of Oakley encourages local nonprofit organizations to apply for grants that address a wide range of community needs. The grant application process is simple and will help local organizations serve Oakley residents and businesses through their work.
The grants are funded by the City’s allocation of the American Rescue Plan Act Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds. Last year, Oakley received $10.2 million in ARPA funding to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the related economic crisis. The City Council set aside $180,000 of these funds to support local nonprofits.
The City is now accepting applications from registered nonprofits for projects that meet grant guidelines and are aligned with the City’s goals and priorities. The maximum award of the one-time grants is $15,000 and priority will be given to projects that:
- Meet City priorities and community needs
- Support the most impacted populations
- Leverage and align with other funding sources
- Make the best use of these one-time resources
- Have a lasting impact
Applications are due by noon on May 19, 2022. An informational session will be held for nonprofits interested in applying for grants on Thursday, April 21, 2022, from 4 to 5 p.m. in the City Council Chambers located at 3231 Main Street. More information is also available by calling 925-625-7162.
