The City Council of the City of Healdsburg established a Community Benefit Grant Program funded by interest earned on the proceeds from the sale of the former city hall facility. This program was created to provide funding to local non-profit organizations with programs or projects designed to meet and/or enhance community needs.
The Council is interested in projects that benefit a large cross section of residents, offer a sustainable benefit to Healdsburg and support community participation. Of particular interest are programs and projects that have a direct correlation to resident services and enhancement in the areas of recreation, support services and the environment. A total of $50,000 was available for the 2019 program year. Individual grant awards typically range from $2,000 to $10,000.
