City of Solvang Grant Funding Process

The Solvang City Council recognizes the importance of the many human service, cultural and emergency assistance programs and organizations that serve community residents. As part of the annual budget process, the City Council shall appropriate such funds as it deems prudent and reasonable to award grants to non-profit community service organizations. Such funds will be held in reserve until specific funding requests and recommendations are reviewed and approved by the City Council.

If your Agency received funding for FY 2017-18, the Agency needs to provide a report to the City Council within 120 days of the end of their fiscal year.

The deadline for Agencies requesting funding for FY 2018-19 is Friday, March 16, 2018 at 5:00 PM.
