Final Fire Relief Grant Funding Targeted to Non-Profit Equine Organizations
The Sonoma County Horse Council has completed three rounds of fire relief grant funding resulting in 32 grant awards totaling $131,698. The Council has decided to do a fourth and final round of funding exclusively targeting 501(c)(3) nonprofit equine organizations impacted by the October fires. The expectation is that we will expend the remaining balance of $15,158.03 in our fire relief fund in this fourth and final round.
The application deadline for interested nonprofit organizations is July 31, 2018. The link below is to the grant application form.
Any questions about the fire relief program can be directed to the Council’s treasurer, Mark Krug, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
