Need a Good Neighbor Grant?

Good neighbor grants are our “cup of sugar” grant – a little neighborly support that can make a big difference to a special 0-to-5 project. Good Neighbor Grants will support project costs for efforts that do not qualify for any other First 5 Shasta funding category. Applicants can ask for a minimum of $250 to a maximum of $1,500. All grant awarded funds must be spent during the fiscal year that runs from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017.
