The City of Concord and Concord/Pleasant Hill Health Care District offer grants to nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations and public agencies. Funding sources consist of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, Child Care Developer Fees, and Concord/Pleasant Hill Health Care District funds. Each funding source described below has its own requirements and criteria. No grants are available to individuals for any purpose.

The Concord Community Services Commission and Concord/Pleasant Hill Health Care District Grant Committee evaluate all proposals according to established evaluation criteria, and make funding recommendations to City Council (also serving as the Concord/Pleasant Hill Health Care District Board of Directors) according to a timeline. Concord's City Council makes all final funding decisions in a Council meeting usually held in May.

If you are interested in being notified of funding availability during the next funding cycle or need more information about the grant process, please contact Brenda Kain, Community Services Program Manager at (925) 671-3088 or Brenda.Kain@cityofconcord.org to be added to the email notification list.

The 2015/20 Contra Costa Consortium Consolidated Plan and the City of Concord 2015/20 Consolidated Plan and FY 2016/17 Action Plan are available.

The City of Concord, in cooperation with the Contra Costa Consortium (which includes the CDBG entitlement jurisdictions of Antioch, Concord, Pittsburg, and Walnut Creek, and Contra Costa County) has prepared a five-year Consolidated Plan for 2015/20. The Consolidated Plan is mandated by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and outlines funding priorities for housing, economic development, infrastructure, and public services from 2015 - 2020.

Also available is the City of Concord's Action Plan, a subsidiary document of the five-year plan. The Action Plan outlines the programs and projects that will help meet the housing and non-housing community needs of the lower income households and areas in our community. It covers the period of July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2017.
