Post Date:05/06/2020 8:10 am

The City is accepting grant applications from organizations that provide community programs available to Newport Beach residents. The application deadline is Wednesday, May 27 at 5 p.m.

The City has budgeted $60,000 to provide grants to qualifying organizations to enhance services or programs offered to residents. Organizations can apply online for consideration of a grant award from the City’s fiscal year 2020-2021 budget.

To qualify for the grants, organizations must offer programs or services to 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 Council reviews and approves which organizations receive grants and how much each organization receives.

COVID-19 Coronavirus

The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and has now been detected globally. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

The City of Newport Beach is working with federal, state, and local partners including the CDC, the OC Health Care Agency (OCHCA), and health care providers to prepare and appropriately care for people who may be at risk for illness associated with COVID-19 or who have tested positive for COVID-19. This is a rapidly changing situation, and we will share more as we are updated from our colleagues at the local, state and/or federal level.
