SOLANO COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND

 The 2022 COVID-19 Emergency Response Grant cycle will open on or about July 1, 2022.

Qualified 501(c)(3) charitable and faith-based organizations serving Solano residents are eligible to apply.  Our nonprofit partners (as second responders) continue serving families and indiviuals who have been severely impacted due to illness, business closures, and loss of income.

As the coronavirus and ensuing economic fallout have ravaged our country, we’ve seen firsthand how this crisis heightens social and systemic inequalities.  Structural racism, disparities in the labor market, and differences in citizenship status contribute to how this pandemic has impacted our communities.   

 2022 GRANT FOCUS

These COVID-19 Emergency Response Grants will support Nonprofit partners as "second responders" who provide essential health care services and protect at-risk populations during a crisis. Eligible organizations are those currently providing emergency support services (basic needs, e.g., food, rent and utilities payments, and direct financial support) to vulnerable and marginalized individuals and families impacted by COVID-19 in Solano County. 

        Direct Basic Needs Support. SCF’s first priority is to provide funding to help low-income children and families, adults, and older adults struggling to secure basic needs (i.e., food, shelter, financial assistance, medicine) due to the hardship causedby COVID-19. Grantees will use these funds to support individuals and families ingreatest need.

        Nonprofit Operating Support.  SCF will also fund charitable organizations to helpthem continue operating and delivering services. Grantees will use these funds to address the hardships caused by COVID-19 (i.e., payroll, rent, I.T. support, general operating expenses).
