QUICK RESPONSE CRISIS GRANT PROGRAM

Effective January 16, 2018

In response to the Thomas Fire and Montecito Mudslides which have devastated our local communities, Hutton Parker Foundation has decided to suspend its 2018 Core Support Grant program and replace it with a Quick Response Crisis Grant program.

An initial $1 million has been designated to support this special initiative.

Our community is experiencing extraordinary times.  The impacts of the recent natural disasters that struck our area are just beginning to be realized and felt.  Individuals, families and businesses are all reeling from the devastation.  Our nonprofit sector is not immune to these impacts.  Now, more than ever, our nonprofits will be called upon to help our community come together to rebuild, renew, support and nurture one another.  Hutton Parker Foundation is committed to helping our nonprofits maintain operational stability while meeting the demand for consistent and in some cases expanded program and service to their clients.

Our Quick Response Crisis Grant is designed to address both immediate and near term funding gaps, unplanned expenses, facility repairs and other needs.  The Quick Response Crisis Grant is designated for unrestricted general operating support intended to help an organization sustain normal operational capacity as well as program and service delivery during these especially challenging times.

Application for funding is open to ALL SANTA BARBARA COUNTY-BASED NONPROFIT (501(C3)) ORGANIZATIONS.

Funding limits will be based on the applicant agency’s 2017-18 Annual Operating Budget.

Annual Budget <$200,000 Max award $10,000

Annual Budget $200,001 – 500,000 Max award $20,000

Annual Budget $500,001 – 1,000,000 Max award $35,000

Annual Budget > $1,000,000 Max award $50,000
