Community Programs and Human Services Grants

The City is accepting grant applications from organizations providing community programs and human services to Newport Beach residents. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, May 31 at 5 p.m. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. 

The City budgets $75,000 annually to provide grants to qualifying organizations to enhance services or programs offered to local residents. Organizations can apply online for consideration of a grant award from the City’s fiscal year 2019-2020 budget. 

To be deemed eligible, organizations must offer programs or services to local Newport Beach residents. Submitting an application does not guarantee award of all, part, or any financial support from the City. Applications are evaluated based on the eligibility, qualifications, evaluation criteria, and requirements as outlined for the program.

The City Manager's Office reviews submitted applications and prioritizes the following when making a funding recommendation:

  • Local groups located within the city and offering programs to Newport Beach residents;
  • Regional groups located in Orange County and offering programs to Newport Beach residents;
  • Groups located in California and offering programs to Newport Beach residents; and
  • Groups that have not received funding from any City source for three consecutive years or more.

The City Council reviews staff's recommendations and can deny, modify or approve which organizations receive grants and how much each organization receives.
