Nonprofit organizations serving residents of Roseville and south Placer County can now apply for grant funding through the city of Roseville.
Up to $495,000 will be available for the 2012-13 funding cycle through a competitive grant process. That funding includes $457,500 from the Citizens Benefit Fund, $25,000 from the Roseville Automall Community Fund and $12,500 from the Roseville Employees Annual Charitable Hearts Fund, called REACH.
Organizations interested in applying are encouraged to attend a Grants Advisory Commission applicant workshop at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10 in City Council Chambers, 311 Vernon St.
Agencies can submit one application to apply for grants from the three funding sources for which they qualify. The commission reviews all applications and recommends awards to the Roseville City Council for final approval.
The Citizens Benefit Fund was created in 1993 with proceeds from the sale of the Roseville Community Hospital deposited into an interest-bearing account. Since 1994, $13 million has been awarded to agencies that provide health and social services, and cultural and educational programs.
The Roseville Automall Community Fund was created in 2005 to benefit agencies serving youth, families and seniors in Placer County.
The REACH Fund was created in 2003 to receive donations from city employees as part of an annual giving campaign and award grants to nonprofit agencies serving local youth, families and seniors.
