The City is currently accepting applications for Social and Community Service Grants. The deadline to apply is May 17, 2021 by 5 pm.

The City of Watsonville is now accepting applications for Social and Community Services grants for FY 2021-2023. To simply the process we created a Google Form Application - which you can access here:

Applications are due by Monday, May 17, 2021 by 5:00 pm. 

The City of Watsonville has allocated $266,000 to fund these grants. General fund and Measure M Tax have been identified as the two funding sources available to fund community organizations.

The Council will consider requests to fund organizations that offer programs in Watsonville serving children, youth, adults and seniors. Programs designed to serve current community needs such as prevention, intervention, and pro-social/developmental activities for youth, COVID -19 response and recovery and or other current emerging needs will be considered.

Funding requests will be considered for a minimum of $5,000 and to a maximum request of $15,000 per organization.

Previously funded organizations will be evaluated on their past compliance with reporting requirements to this program. The Council will prioritize proposals that help advance strategic priorities of the Council.
