Grant Applications Available for Citizens' Benefit Fund and R.E.A.C.H. Fund
Applications are now available online for the Citizen's Benefit Fund and REACH grants. Those interested in applying for these grants should plan to attend the informational and training meeting at 7 p.m. on January 14, 2014 in the City Council Chambers.
The estimated total funding available for the 2014/2015 funding cycle is $237,900. The application deadline is 5 p.m., Wednesday, February 12, 2014.
The Citizens' Benefit Fund was established in 1993 following the sale of the city-owned Roseville Hospital. The proceeds were placed in a trust and a portion of the interest earned each year is made available for grants with the purpose of improving the quality of life for the citizens of Roseville.
The Roseville Employees Annual Charitable Hearts Fund (R.E.A.C.H.) is a community giving fund created through the generosity of Roseville employees and retirees. These employee-donated funds are dispersed to local charitable organizations that serve youth, seniors and families in the South Placer County region.
After grant applications are reviewed, the Roseville Grants Advisory Commission makes its funding recommendations to the Roseville City Council. The City Council has the final approval on disbursement of each of the grant funds. Funds are awarded on or after July 1, 2014.
