Housing & Human Services Grant Application 

The City of Pleasanton Housing & Human Services Grant (HHSG) Program provide financial support for non-profit, community-based organizations that serve Pleasanton and Tri-Valley residents.  The mission statement for the program is simple:  "to enhance the qualify of life in Pleasanton".  The grant program provides funding for a wide variety of human services, community development, and housing projects and programs for individuals and families living in Pleasanton and in the Tri-Valley.  Most of the grants are focused on activities that benefit lower income residents.

In the upcoming fiscal year (2023-2024), Pleasanton is estimating to provide over $475,000 to projects and programs including: medical visits and health care access for the uninsured; child abuse prevention services; meals and supportive services for seniors; mental health care; substance abuse counseling; domestic violence and homeless shelters; rental assistance for job training participants; fair housing counseling and tenant-landlord services; housing rehabilitation for low income homeowners; and many more.

Non-profit, community-based organizations interested in applying for HHSG program funds must submit their project or program application(s) online through ZoomGrants. 

The online application in ZoomGrants, which was available from December 2, 2022 through January 20, 2023 is now closed. 

Late applications will not be reviewed for funding.  There will be no exceptions.
