The deadline for applications is March 13, 2020, and decisions will be made by April 13, 2020.

Each year the Committee focuses on a specific category for funding. This year the category is: Programs Serving Youth Affected by Homelessness and Food Insecurity. Funding will be considered for project proposals submitted by nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations serving Menlo Park, East Palo Alto and adjacent unincorporated areas.
