Social and Community Service Grants Fiscal Year 2013-2014


The City of Watsonville is currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 Social and Community Service Grants.

The City of Watsonville follows a two-year funding cycle. Fiscal Year 2013-2014 is the first year of the City’s funding cycle. During the first year all agencies are invited to submit applications. Subsequently, it is also at this time when new agencies and/or programs are considered for new funding.

Please be advised that during the second year only currently funded agency applications are accepted, no supplemental funding or new programs/agencies are considered. The City Council will discuss recommendations at one of their regular meetings and you will receive notice of the meeting date and time.

New Applicants can use the Contract Management Contract (CMC) website to Apply Online:
