NorCal Grants Guatemala, 2010

NorCal's Grants Program provides funds for community development projects all around our planet. While there is no minimum-maximum size, most grants average from $500-$2000 depending on the amount requested and funds available.

NorCal looks for varied international and domestic project opportunities benefiting different groups of people, in keeping with the spirit and idea of Peace Corps. The persons requesting funds must demonstrate commitment to the project by providing community labor, monetary contributions, local resources and/or training.

We encourage projects submitted by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and current Peace Corps Volunteers from Northern California.

NorCal looks for opportunities to:

  • Provide total project costs
  • Fund start-up project costs
  • Expand or replicate a successful project.

Application Deadline is August 31, 2013
