City Grant Funding Available For Local Non-Profits
Non-profit organizations can get help through grant funding from the city of Yakima. The City of Yakima has dedicated $1.4 million in grant funds to assist non-profit corporations in the city limits.
Funding is through a second round of grants the City received from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
"The Yakima City Council has set aside the funds to provide non-profit corporations short-term assistance and aid with costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Non-profits must be located in the Yakima city limits and have a federal tax-exempt status to be eligible.
The first priority will be non-profit corporations which have a contractual relationship with the City. Those organizations may receive up to $30,000.
Other non-profit applicants will be prioritized as follows:
Non-profit corporations which provided services to the community during the pandemic may apply to receive up to $10,000 and have second priority.
Non-profit corporations which did not provide services to the community during the pandemic may apply to receive $10,000 and have third priority.
Applications and additional information are available in English and Spanish at https://www.yakimawa.gov/media/yakima-cares-grants/
Applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm on Friday, October 30th, to be considered for the second round of rankings and awards.
Non-profits interested in applying for round two of the CARES grant can contact YCDA at 575-1140 if they have questions or need assistance with the application."
