Beaches Community Fund

For the 2021-2022 grant cycle, grant applications are open to nonprofit organizations serving the Beaches communities from Mayport to Guana, east of the Intracoastal Waterway.

Priority will be given to applicants addressing:

  • The basic needs of beaches residents (food, emergency financial assistance, housing, shelter, transportation, health care, and behavioral health support), including those created or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Supports for K-12 students (including school-based supports, afterschool and out-of-school programs, and enrichment for low-income students).
  • Early learning opportunities for low-income students (including access to high-quality early learning centers, enhancing quality and learning within early learning centers, and home- or community-based learning opportunities).
  • The transportation needs of low-income Beaches residents to access essential goods and services.

Applicants who have not previously received a grant from the Beaches Community Fund, or who are outside the parameters described above, will be given lower priority.
