Community Disaster Relief Fund
The Santa Barbara Foundation, United Way of Santa Barbara County, and Hutton Parker Foundation are leading a countywide collaborative with members of the Foundation Roundtable to provide assistance to individuals and families as well as organizations actively engaged in assistance efforts for members of the community affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have greatly impacted our community and the nonprofit sector in Santa Barbara County. The rapid response grant program is a part of the COVID-19 Joint Response Effort.
The rapid response grant program will now be prioritizing grant applications that:
The COVID-19 Joint Response Effort is available for requests to support meeting emergency needs, adaptive services, and organizational operating support. If your organization applied to the COVID-19 Response Grant cycle in the past, you are still eligible to submit an application. With approval from organizations, we are sharing requests for funding for all three areas with funders of the COVID-19 Joint Response Effort to maximize funding opportunities for organizations.
Please view our COVID-19 Nonprofit Resource page for additional links and resources. As always, we encourage you to connect with program staff at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to submitting an application.
We encourage you to review the grant guidelines carefully and prepare your information for the application. Please contact us with any questions.
We are deeply grateful to the generous individuals, businesses, and foundations who have stepped forward to help our neighbors in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
