Community Assistance Grant Program (CAP)
Request for Funding Applications, 2021-22 and 2022-23 Fiscal Years

The Community Assistance Grant Program (CAP) and the Community Development Block Grant programs provide financial support to non-profits that provide social services to individuals and households living in San Leandro. Applicants that respond to this Request for Funding will be eligible for a two-year funding cycle covering fiscal years 2021 through 2023 (July 1, 2021-June 30, 2023). CAP is funded by the City of San Leandro general fund. Federal Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) are funding by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).

The City’s CAP grants seek applications that address the unmet needs identified within the Human Services Gap Analysis. Priority will be given to the following areas: Severe/high-level mental and behavioral health needs, development of food security programs or services, domestic and intimate partner violence services and job development, income support and employment services.

The City’s CDBG program seeks applications that address the goals and objectives in the City’s Five Year Consolidated Plan covering fiscal years 2020 through 2024 (July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2025).

The next grant application cycle will open early 2023. Please check back for details at that time. For further information on CDBG, please contact Maryann Sargent [email protected] and for CAP, Elsa Castillo [email protected].
