Dixie Fire Grant Program

Description

Immediate assistance is our top priority facing the community as the Dixie Fire continues to
threaten communities. Other program areas may be added as significant needs and
opportunities emerge. At this time, any work outside of immediate assistance will be
considered by invitation only. Applications will be reviewed by a joint committee representing
NVCF’s Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund and Almanor Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund.

In general, grant awards will range up to $5,000. Amounts above this range may be considered by invitation only.

We have allocated money from our Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund to issue grants to organizations that are helping to provide basic necessities to evacuees.

Eligibility

Be qualified as a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, be fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3), or be classified as a unit of local government (including public schools). Qualified entities include churches that serve congregations of at least 100 people and the proposed projects or programs that are not denomination specific and meet the specific criteria. Other organizations may also propose projects that meet the specific criteria but may be required to partner with a 501(c)(3) entity.

Refer to the rest of the eligibility requirements in the grant guidelines.
