2019 SDRF GRANT PROGRAM
The 2019 Solano Disaster Relief Fund (SDRF) grant application cycle is open! SCF is accepting applications from March 1, 2019 thru October 4, 2019 from qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organizations serving Solano and Napa residents affected by the recent Napa and Solano fires.
The Solano Disaster Relief Fund was established to support recovery and rebuilding efforts. After the frenzy and chaos of a devastating disaster passes, the long road to recovery and rebuilding begins. SCF does not award cash grants to individuals, however, grants from this Fund will help the nonprofits that are providing direct services to individuals and families. SCF is not able to support individuals with cash grants.
Grants from the Solano Disaster Relief Fund will focus on helping those organizations who are working to provide relief and recovery services to Solano County and Napa County residents, specifically for medical care, counseling, temporary shelter and meals to the individuals and families affected by the October Fires.
To begin the application process, first read the SDRF Eligibility & Application Instructions document. Then, complete the SDRF Grant Application Form. When requesting a larger grant, written responses to a list of LOI (Letter of Intent) items must be included (in addition to the application form). Note: The same form is used to apply for either a small or large grant request.
Small grants of up to $2,500 will be awarded to help support relief projects that are short- term, meet the most urgent needs of victims, and are time sensitive (food, clothing, temporary shelter).
Larger grants (up to $7,500) are available to support intermediate and long-term, more complex recovery programs (e.g., employment development or training, healthcare, transportation).

SCF as a community foundation, will play a distinct and critical role in the recovery efforts to address the mid- to long-term needs of the communities we serve. We are in the best position to hold funds, make grants, and support rebuilding efforts.
Many nonprofits and government agencies have been supporting fire victims directly, but many nonprofits themselves (personnel and places of business) were impacted and also need help.
To this end, SCF continues to accept donations to the Solano Disaster Relief Fund to help in relief and recovery efforts.
