2019 SDRF GRANT PROGRAM
The 2019 Solano Disaster Relief Fund (SDRF) grant application cycle has been extended. SCF is accepting applications thru December 31, 2019 from qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organizations serving Solano and Napa residents affected by wildfires impacting Solano, Napa, and Sonoma counties.
The Solano Disaster Relief Fund was established to support recovery and rebuilding efforts. After the frenzy and chaos of a devastating disaster passes, the long road to recovery and rebuilding begins. SCF does not award cash grants to individuals, however, grants from this Fund will help the nonprofits that are providing direct services to individuals and families. SCF is not able to support individuals with cash grants.
Grants from the Solano Disaster Relief Fund will focus on helping those organizations who are working to provide relief and recovery services to Solano County and Napa County residents, specifically for medical care, counseling, temporary shelter and meals to the individuals and families affected by the fires.
To begin the application process, first read the SDRF Eligibility & Application Instructions document. Then, complete the SDRF Grant Application Form. When requesting a larger grant, written responses to a list of LOI (Letter of Intent) items must be included (in addition to the application form). Note: The same form is used to apply for either a small or large grant request.
Small grants of up to $2,500 will be awarded to help support relief projects that are short- term, meet the most urgent needs of victims, and are time sensitive (food, clothing, temporary shelter).
Larger grants (up to $7,500) are available to support intermediate and long-term, more complex recovery programs (e.g., employment development or training, healthcare, transportation).

Visit the website, RESPONSE.CA.GOV - it combines emergency response, recovery and resilience information into a single place for easy access by users. It is a one-stop portal that includes local and state resources, health services, shelters and housing, preparedness information, and more.
SCF as a community foundation, will play a distinct and critical role in the recovery efforts to address the mid- to long-term needs of the communities we serve. We are in the best position to hold funds, make grants, and support rebuilding efforts.
Many nonprofits and government agencies have been supporting fire victims directly, but many nonprofits themselves (personnel and places of business) were impacted and also need help.
To this end, SCF continues to encourage donors to make donations to the Solano Disaster Relief Fund to help in the relief and recovery efforts for those affected by these disasters.
