Getting Help

CalNonprofits continues to provide application assistance and advocacy to help nonprofit organizations access the CA Relief Grant for small businesses and nonprofits. Since the end of last year, we’ve helped thousands of applicants to apply and to work through the program requirements. We continue to hear your issues and present them to our partners at the state and at Lendistry. And we’re overjoyed each time we hear about another of the thousands of nonprofits who have gotten critical funding to continue their work.
Should I reapply if I’m on the waitlist?
Waitlisted applications will be considered in Rounds 7 and 9. There’s no need to reapply.
Can I get another grant in a different round?
You can only receive one grant from the program regardless of which round you apply in.
How can I check my application status?
Applicants can log back into their applications to check the status message. For more information, see our FAQs .
Who has gotten funding?
The California Office of the Small Business Advocate has released a report on grants for Rounds 1–3.
It's been an honor and inspiring to talk to so many grassroots nonprofits!

Help Others

There are thousands of nonprofits – especially smaller ones, rural ones, and ones in low-income and/or communities of color – that either haven't heard of this grant program or got confused by the process in the first rounds. Take a minute to think of an all-volunteer food pantry, dance troupe, soccer league, drill team, or other organizations you can share this information with – and encourage them to apply.
The California legislature authorized $1.5 billion in additional financial relief for nonprofits and small businesses – and created two new rounds of funding – meaning there is much more reason to apply than ever before. For the most current information check .

Workshop on Accessory Dwelling Units (granny flats) Tuesday, November 13, 2018, 7-9 pm

Tuesday, November 13th 7-9pm

Vineyard Rec Center - 2942 Vineyard Ave - 90016


Sponsored by the West Adams Neighborhood Council

Dear Stakeholders,

 An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) also known as granny flat can be a garage, add on room or existing main dwelling room all built or remodeled to become a livable space with kitchen and bath. State legislation was passed in January 2017 to allow home owners to use this law. While many local laws regarding such use are still being worked out, it is now legal to add an ADU to almost any single family residential property. ADU's might help to ease the housing crisis.


It is estimated that there are tens of thousands of such unpermitted conversions that exist now in LA alone that were done prior to this new law. Property owners with non permitted ADU's can benefit from this workshop by understanding what they need to do to come into compliance.

To help inform the public on current local law and ADU options, WANC is sponsoring the workshop below.



Tuesday, November 13th 7-9pm

Vineyard Rec Center - 2942 Vineyard Ave - 90016


City of Los Angeles - Both Departments of Building and Safety and Zoning will be on hand

United Dwelling Units - Modative will explain their ADU program

 light refreshments will be served


We hope to see you there

Steven Meeks
