Webinar: How to Apply for Nonprofit COVID Relief Grants from the County of Kern & City of Bakersfield
Oct 5, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The County of Kern and the City of Bakersfield know that many local charitable organizations have incurred additional expenses in responding to greatly increased community needs, at the same time that they have experienced significantly reduced funding streams due to the COVID-19 crisis.
To help our hard-working nonprofits weather this unprecedented storm, the City and County have partnered to make grant funding available to support agencies that:
Have been financially impacted by COVID-19, and
Have not received funding from the Kern Recovers Forgivable Loan Program. (Agencies that have received other Federal or State support might still be eligible to apply.)
Funding for the Kern Recovers Nonprofit Grant Program comes from Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act Relief Funds allocated by the Bakersfield City Council and Kern County Board of Supervisors.
Individual grant awards are $5,000, $10,000, or $20,000.
