Riverside County has launched an assistance fund that will provide grants ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 to the nonprofit community throughout Riverside County.
As a life-long resident of the Coachella Valley, I admire and appreciate the work local nonprofits do to address community needs and fill the gaps in the economy and society. Unfortunately, this pandemic has impacted nonprofits in their capacity to support their organizations at a time that their services are needed more than ever.
For these reasons, I am very proud we worked to include the non-profit sector as a key area for financial support, through federal funding Riverside County received for the county’s response to the pandemic. The Board of Supervisors has allocated $5 million to create the Riverside County Non-Profit Assistance Fund, which will provide funding to more than 400 nonprofit organizations.
The Inland Empire Community Foundation will administer this fund, with an online applications are available now.
I know that these times have been difficult for all of you, your families and the residents we serve. I want to thank you for your hard work and for stepping up every day to improve lives and help those in need.
Thank you, and please feel free to contact my office at (760) 863-8211 for concerns and assistance.
