The COVID-19 Nonprofit Resiliency and Sustainability Grant Program aims to strengthen the sustainability and responsiveness of nonprofits in Santa Clara County that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on racial equity. Through this funding, we envision a stronger and more vibrant nonprofit sector, providing services to the most vulnerable members of our community in an equitable, diverse, respectful, and inclusive way.
This $10 million grant program is funded by the County of Santa Clara through the Federal Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds under the American Rescue Plan Act.
- Resilience – to assist nonprofits in addressing the negative economic impacts of the pandemic.
- Sustainability – to assist nonprofits with planning or implementing organizational change to strengthen racial equity, diversity, and inclusion within organizational operations and/or in providing services or programming to the community.

An applicant may apply for funding under both and be eligible for a minimum total grant of $50,000 and a maximum total grant of $300,000. No grant may exceed $150,000 within a single funding category per applicant.
