American Rescue Plan Cash Aid Grants
Mini grants available for local businesses and non-profits
Cash aid grants for local non-profits and business organizations that experienced the negative economic, health, and safety impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are now available through the District 1 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Grants. To be eligible to apply for a Cash Aid Grant your organization must have experienced a negative economic impact created by COVID-19 for the period March 1, 2020 to the present.

Grants will reflect the geographic and cultural diversity of Alameda County, prioritizing organizations operated by or serving populations and communities that were disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Cash Aid Grants cannot exceed the amount of the organization’s losses due to the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ARPA guidelines require that the cash aid grants be reasonably proportional to the negative economic impacts they are intended to address. Grant amounts cannot exceed $100,000 per Supervisorial district and are subject to availability of funds within each Supervisorial District’s $3.1 million allocation.

All qualifying local non-profits and business organizations interested in applying for the District 1 ARPA grants, please visit this website to learn more.

Calling all local businesses - Sponsorship opportunity through City of Pleasanton Movies in the Park!

The Movies in the Park are held Thursday evenings from June 30 – August 4, 2022, at Amador Valley Community Park. Sponsoring Pleasanton's Movies in the Park puts your business in front of over 500 audience members each night while contributing to a fun and free, community-building event. Two levels of sponsorship are available, and your support helps to continue a popular Pleasanton tradition.  
Throughout April, Stanford Blood Center (SBC) is celebrating a renewed commitment to the environment and providing easy ways for our donors to help the planet, too! For each donation made in April, SBC will be planting one tree in Uganda as part of a Forestmatic reforestation project in the country. Uganda has lost more than half of its forest land in the past 30 years, so this is a great way to save lives through blood donation, and to support the rebuilding of native ecosystems. Plus, donors will receive a unique tree ID for each donation, which will allow them to find their tree online and watch it grow!
