About the Non-Profit Stabilization Grant Program

Non-Profit Grant Program Information

The Glenn County Board of Supervisors approved the Glenn County Non-Profit Stabilization Grant Program funded through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. Non-profits have faced significant challenges due to the pandemic’s increased demand for services and changing operational needs, as well as declines in revenue sources such as donations and fees. Eligible non-profits under this grant program are those that experienced negative economic impacts or disproportionate impacts of the pandemic and meet the definition of “non-profit” – specifically those that are 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19) tax-exempt organizations. The Program will provide grants of up to fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000) to assist these non-profit organizations for the purposes previously stated. The program allows for one grant per tax-exempt entity.

The Glenn County Non-Profit Stabilization Grant Program will provide a maximum of fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000) in one-time grant awards to non-profit organizations located within Glenn County and who serve Glenn County residents. These grant funds will assist Glenn County non-profit organizations with costs associated with the impacts of business closures, the costs associated with adherence to local requirements for safe business re-openings, and the financial impacts due to COVID-19. The Program Operator will choose grantees determined to be eligible local non-profit organizations serving Glenn County residents on a first-come first-serve basis after a three (3) week open application window.

The organization applying for a grant MUST be a non-profit organization and MUST be located within Glenn County and serving Glenn County residents.
