In January, the Palo Alto-based Chan Zuckerberg Initiative provided grants within the same range of funding to 41 local nonprofits, including Children's Health Council, College Track, Belle Haven Action, Art in Action, JobTrain, GRID Alternatives, Hack the Hood, the Housing Leadership Council of San Mateo County, Menlo Spark, Peninsula Family Service, Project WeHOPE, and the Ravenswood Family Health Center.
The new grant cycle will expand beyond the last cycle's parameters of working with nonprofits that support education, homelessness, housing, immigration, transportation and workforce development to include nonprofits that help people deal with health problems, mental health and food security. Current grantees are eligible to apply.
The grant application can be found at chanzuckerberg.com. The application deadline is 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Recipients will be notified in the fall and finalists will be announced in early 2019, according to the organization.
