CCDC Emergency Assistance Grant Application and Guidelines
Mission: Provide rental housing and related facilities including financing, programs, and services specially designed to meet the physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs of the aged. Such housing and services will contribute to their health, security, happiness, and feelings of usefulness.
The Community Congregational Development Corporation (CCDC) is committed to supporting the vital work of nonprofit organizations serving older adults and seniors in Chula Vista and the broader South Bay region affected by the coronavirus. Organizations may apply for funding on a rolling basis to support programs and activities that support older adults and seniors, as well as general operating support. Eligible uses of funding include, but are not limited to, food and nutrition assistance, rent/mortgage assistance, utility assistance, health care and prescription costs, and social/recreational activities to reduce isolation.
CCDC wants to provide meaningful support to organizations supporting seniors during the pandemic and prefers to provide funding that will cover at least three months of expenses for the proposed project. CCDC anticipates funding projects in the range of $10,000-$35,000, but will consider requests outside that range based on the organization’s size and program objectives. Organizations that have received funding may be considered for additional funding requests after 90 days, pending funding availability.
CCDC will accept applications from qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. To be considered for funding, organizations are required to submit a copy of their 501(c)(3) determination letter with the application.
If the organization is awarded a grant, the letter of agreement must be signed by an authorized representative of the organization and returned to CCDC.
CCDC requires that grantees commit to using all funds for the purposes described in the application. Grantees are also expected to submit either an expenditure report or receipts within 6 months of the receipt of funding.
CCDC requests that grantees include its name and/or logo in all promotional and donor materials related to the program (e.g., banners, signage, website, brochures, reports, videos, and press releases). A version of the CCDC logo suitable for reproduction will be included with letters notifying applicants of funding awards.
CCDC welcomes thank you letters and testimonials, but prefers not to receive recognition items to ensure that organizations maximize the resources they allocate to achieving program outcomes.
