Community Agency Funding

To be eligible to receive these funds, applicants must meet a number of minimum application and contracting requirements.

The Community Agency funding process is highly competitive. Request for Proposal (RFP) and application packets are generally issued annually, with the proposals due in December. Proposals are reviewed December through April and funds are awarded by City Council in April. Funded program activities begin in July.

The application process for funding for FY 2020-2021 is currently CLOSED and applications are under review. To apply for FY 2021-2022, you must attend the Bidders' Conference that will occur in Fall 2020. If you wish to be added to the Interested Parties e-mail list to learn about opportunities for funding in FY 2021-22, please e-mail Evelyn.Olivera@hayward-ca.gov. As of February 20, 2019 the Community Services Commission (CSC) has developed draft funding recommendations which can be found below. The Public Comment Period was open between February 21, 2019 and March 2019 and is now closed.

Additional opportunities for public comment will also be welcomed by e-mail, mail, or in person at a future City Council Work Session, or City Council Public Hearing, yet to be determined.
