You have more time to apply!

We know these past few weeks have been rough and filled with uncertainty, so we've extended the deadline for the My LA2050 Grants Challenge to Friday, April 3. 

In addition to the $1M in grants, your application also gives you access to additional grant opportunities through our partners listed below

We've also added one more virtual info session in case you have additional questions. In this session, we'll briefly review the My LA2050 Grants Challenge and address your questions. Register here.

A few of you have asked very good questions about planning in the time of uncertainty (for example, events being canceled due to coronavirus concerns). We have two suggestions: 

  1. Plan as if you'll return to normal activity levels. Once grant winners are announced in June 2020, each organization will be able to revise its plan based on current information. 
  2. Submit a project that helps your community recover from this time and be prepared for future public health emergencies.
