2022 Solano Disaster Relief Grants not yet available

Solano Community Foundation is not currently soliciting requests for disaster-related funding support.  When funding is available, those qualified 501(c)(3) charitable and faith-based organizations providing direct disaster relief and recovery services to Solano residents are eligible to apply for a grant. 

The Solano Disaster Relief Fund was established in 2017 to financially help nonprofits and faith-based organizations deliver direct support services and needed resources to individuals and families living in Solano County and impacted by a disaster.  SCF will prioritize requests wherein services and resources provided will reach marginalized populations and historically underserved communities.  SCF does not make grants directly to individuals and or families. 

Northern California has experienced widespread wildfires over the last seven years that have caused death and destruction; impacted individuals and families, damaged business, farms, homes and structures, and caused displacement of people and animals.  In 2020 dozens of counties and hundreds of thousands of residents were impacted by the earlier-than-usual wildfires.  Solano County was already experiencing the socioeconomic impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic when the LNU Lightning Complex fires compounded the devastation.  Given the severe draught conditions California is experiencing, it is logical to assume that annual fires are not an 'if' any longer, they are a 'when' - and the time to prepare is 'now.'  


Only one application per organization, per disaster will be funded at a time.  A subsequent grant may be awarded if the need continues and funding exists.  There are two funding priorities:

          Urgent Needs.  Grant monies must be used to provide relief and recovery support to meet the most urgent needs of those impacted by the disaster (i.e., food, clothing, temporary shelter, transportation, counseling, and emergency medical needs).

          Disater Preparedness.  Limited funding may be available to support organizational disaster preparedness and planning efforts.  These grants are also intended to help agencies that provide a 'first response' in time of disaster, or those organizations that provide continued or ongoing support to those residents impacted directly by the disaster (i.e., case management, healthcare, transportation, mental health support, employment and training). 


For all grantees who received a SDRF grant in 2020 or 2021, your Grantee Report is past due.  Use the link below to download, complete and return the fill-in-the-blank report form to
