APPLY FOR GRANTS FUNDING LOCAL COVID-19 RELIEF EFFORTS
The Morgan Hill Community Foundation (MHCF) is continuing to accept applications for grants in support of local COVID-19 related relief efforts. New grant applications received will be reviewed January 7 for awards expected to be issued in the second week of January.
MHCF’s COVID-19 Disaster Relief Program is an ongoing fundraising and grants program, with no firm deadline for submitting grant applications. Grant applications are periodically reviewed by our community advisory committee as funds become available. To date, the fund has granted out over $48,000 to local nonprofit organizations with amounts ranging from $2,000 up to $8,000 per grant.
To be eligible for a grant, organizations must be a registered 501(c)3 non-profit that is serving the Morgan Hill Community. Non-profits may apply to help fund a current project already underway, or to fund a newly created project. Project proposals must provide services or support specifically addressing needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Awarded grant amounts may be for a portion or all of the requested amount, and non-profits are eligible to re-apply multiple times for future disbursement rounds.
Qualified non-profit organizations should submit their grant application on the Grants page of the MHCF website. Grants which are not selected for funding, or grants received after the next review period on January 8, may still be considered and reviewed during the next funding cycle.
