Non-Profit Grant Program

The City of Tustin has partnered with the Tustin Community Foundation to develop a Non-Profit Recovery Grant Program to provide funding to Section 501(c)3 Non-Profits that experienced a loss of revenue due to COVID-19. The City has allocated up to one million dollars ($1,000,000) for this program, which is funded from American Rescue Plan Act funds that have been allocated to the City of Tustin for COVID-19 response, relief and reinvestment. 


Non-Profits may be eligible to receive up to fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000).  


The grant may be used to cover the day-to-day operating expenses of the organization. The non-profit may also utilize the grant for direct service provision to the community or participants it serves consistent with the non-profit’s mission, with priority given to activities that prepare, prevent, and/or respond to COVID-19.


The grant application period opens on September 13, 2021. Applications must be submitted via email to by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, September 27, 2021.
