Wildfire Relief Fund Grant

Grant Application Fall 2021

Background: Thousands of California community college students, faculty, and staff have been impacted by devastating fires burning across our state. Our thoughts remain with all those affected by wildfires, now and over the past few years. We know to recover and rebuild takes significant time and resources. Recipients of this grant support will be able to use funds to relocate and to replace laptops, supplies, transportation, clothes, and food lost or destroyed in hasty evacuations.

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until funding available is expended.
