County Requests Grant Applications for Local Health, Community Services
The County of San Luis Obispo will award Community Based Organizations and Preventative Health (CBO/PHG) Grants to local programs or projects that support and complement (but do not duplicate) the efforts of the County's health and human services departments. Both public and private nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply by May 3, 2021 at 5 p.m. To honor physical distancing, all grant submissions are to be sent electronically to email@example.com for processing.
The grant funding is meant to promote the health and well-being of the community and encourage behaviors and activities that focus on enabling County residents to reach and maintain optimal health stability and independence.
Grant applications will be reviewed by the CBO/PHG Review Committee, which is made up of representatives appointed by the Adult Services Policy Council, the Behavioral Health Advisory Board, the Health Commission and the Children's Services Network. The Board of Supervisors will review the Committees recommendations and make final funding allocations this summer.
The County received a total of $2 million in grant requests for the current fiscal year. However, only about $1.5 million in grant funding was available to be awarded. Available funding for FY 2021-22 is subject to approval by the Board of Supervisors during June budget hearing but will like to be close to the amount allocated in the current year.
Visit the Administrative Office’s website to review the formal request for applications (RFA) and grant application.
