Mini-Grant Available for Community Partners
Solano Public Health is offering a low-barrier funding opportunity (mini-grants) for community partners to support self-isolation for low-resourced individuals that test positive for COVID-19 or who are at the highest risk for the disease. This support may include (but is not limited to) temporary housing assistance (including hotel/motel stays), basic needs during the period of self-isolation including food and transportation, and PPE (personal protective equipment) such as face coverings, hand sanitizer, gloves, personal hygiene, and related supplies.
Mini-grants of up to $7,400 are available to community partners including (but not limited to) healthcare and shelter organizations to support clients with self-isolation. Organizations with more than one site may submit one application per site. Applications will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis through May 26th, 2023.
If you are interested in applying for the mini-grant, please check out the Request For Application. For additional questions and/or to submit your application, please reach out to COVID19@SolanoCounty.com. Someone will follow up ASAP to discuss next steps.
