Grant Applications Now Open for City’s Community Enhancement Fund

Post Date:02/22/2019 9:00 AM
The City of Rancho Cordova is now accepting grant applications for the 2019/2020 fiscal year, and applicants will have until March 15, 2019 to submit their proposals. The City will accept applications from individual residents, organizations, businesses, and community partners who are interested in enhancing the Rancho Cordova community. The grants awarded in this call for applications are part of the estimated $8 million budget in 2019/2020 for the City’s Community Enhancement Fund. The City’s Community Enhancement Fund is funded by the Measure H, ½ cent local sales tax measure approved by voters in November 2014.

Of the estimated $8 million, the City anticipates awarding $1.6 million in community grants in the categories of arts, culture, history, entertainment, and sports; education; and for other projects. The remaining funds are allocated to other community priorities, such as community development, economic development, public safety, public works, and more. The actual budget may vary based on final approved funding allocations.

Grant applications that include a project or program operating on a K-12 school site must request the endorsement of the applicable school superintendent(s) and must be submitted to the school district representative with the draft grant proposal no later than March 8, 2019.

After applications are received by the City, staff will review each application and supplemental materials and will share the initial review of applications with City Council in April. Applicants may be contacted to present their project during the May 2019 City Council meetings. Funding decisions could be made as early as May and formally adopted in early June 2019. City staff intends to notify all applicants of the funding decisions by late June 2019.

Those interested in submitting a grant proposal can apply through an online application or submit a written funding request. The grant application and other important information for the Community Enhancement Fund can be found on the City’s website at
