Carlsbad Charitable Foundation Announces 2018 Grants Available

Carlsbad CA— Carlsbad Charitable Foundation (CCF), an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation, today announced its annual call for grant applications. In its 11th grant cycle, CCF invites nonprofit organizations and agencies to submit proposals for projects that provide health and human services with an emphasis on stopping the cycle of poverty and homelessness for individuals, youth and families in Carlsbad.

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development 2017 Point-in-Time Count, homelessness has increased 5 percent in San Diego County over the past year, with more than 9,000 San Diegans living on the streets or in shelters. The CCF grant cycle aims to be part of the regional solution by supporting programs that give Carlsbad residents the necessary tools to avoid or move out of homelessness. Examples may include providing computers for creating resumes, counseling to help with setting goals and addressing transportation challenges.

Because of the complexity of the homeless challenge in the region, CCF will fund programs that involve collaborative efforts, specifically those bringing together a variety of stakeholders to achieve the greatest impact.

Eligible nonprofit organizations serving Carlsbad may submit proposals of $15,000 to $60,000. Additionally, projects should be practical, achievable within a 12-month time frame, and have prospects for long-term sustainability. Grant guidelines are available here.

CCF will also be hosting a Grantseekers Forum on November 16 at 11:30am at the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce to discuss the 2018 grant cycle and answer any questions that organizations may have. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Estela Mitrani at estelam@sdfoundation.org by November 14.

For more information about the application, contact Kerri Favela at kerri@sdfoundation.org. The deadline for submissions is January 8, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.
