2023 Grant Cycles

We anticipate 2023 to be the final year of Butte Strong Fund grantmaking.

For grants of more than $50,000, we have transitioned from an open cycle process (apply at any time) to a more traditional closed cycle process.  In short, this means there are firm deadlines around specific areas of interest.

Butte Strong Fund
Small Grant Program

This grant program provides a simpler application process for organizations seeking funding for projects that are smaller in scale. 

To be eligible to receive funding, an organization must clearly show the direct benefit to Butte County community members impacted by the Camp Fire that will be achieved through their project or program and clearly demonstrate the relationship with the key area of work that the request is being submitted under.

Typical grant size: $5,000-$25,000

Please note: The Butte Strong Fund does not have a direct assistance program. Individuals are not eligible for grants. Instead, funding is provided to eligible Camp Fire survivors through the case management system managed by the Camp Fire Collaborative.
