San Geronimo Valley and Nicasio COVID-19 Emergency Fund

The San Geronimo Valley and Nicasio Covid-19 Emergency Fund provides $500 grants to individuals and families who are experiencing financial hardship directly related to the Covid-19 pandemic. These funds can be used to assist with rent or mortgage payments, bills, grocery expenses, medical expenses, or other essential needs. These funds will only be awarded to San Geronimo Valley and Nicasio residents, however, the Bolinas Community Land Trust and West Marin Community Services have similar funds available for other areas of West Marin.

As of April 15th, the first round of applications is now closed. Decisions will be made by April 22, 2020, and distributions will be made immediately. 

Opening May 1st, we will be offering a second round of funding, and applicants are welcome to reapply. We recognize that Covid-19 will have long term ramifications for individuals and families and we are here to help. The deadline for the second round of funding is May 15th.

In partnership with San Geronimo Valley Emergency Fund and the San Geronimo Valley Affordable Housing Association, we are proud to support our community in this way. We stand with you in this unique and challenging time. We would like to thank the Marin Community Foundation and the County of Marin for their generous and continued support of our mission and community. This would not be possible without your partnership.
