Post Date:12/17/2018 11:24 AM

The City of Goleta is now accepting applications for grant funding for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. The City has up to $100,000 to award for both the Goleta City Grant Program and Community Development Block Grant Program combined. Non-profit organizations and governmental agencies are encouraged to apply.

Applications for grant funding are available beginning December 17, 2018, and close at 5:00 p.m. on January 28, 2019. For the first time, applicants will be using ZoomGrants to apply. Paper applications will not be accepted.

Through the Goleta City Grant Program, the City awards grants of up to $5,000 for civic services, community projects, and public services that benefit residents of the City of Goleta. Examples of services and activities eligible to apply include: cultural activities, educational programs and special events.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Organizations competitive for CDBG funding may receive a minimum of $5,000 per grant. CDBG funds are intended to help communities accomplish HUD's overall goals, including the provision of services that benefit low- and moderate-income community members. The City of Goleta uses its CDBG funding allocation to provide grants to organizations that help achieve this goal.

Interested parties can apply through ZoomGrants for the Goleta City Grant Program and the Community Development Block Grant. Additional information and program guidelines can be found at For questions contact Dana Grossi at (805) 562-5507 or

The City Council will award the grants at a meeting in the spring. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help your non-profit organization.
