Feather River Community Fund seeks grant applications

The Feather River Community Fund, founded in 2021, is requesting grant proposals from individuals, organizations, and businesses (including start-ups) that seek to improve the community capacity, vitality, economy, or environment in Plumas County. The fund’s goal is to help sustain and improve the capacity of rural communities of the northern Sierra–Cascades region.

In 2022, grants were awarded to the Lost Sierra Food Project to support farm-based education programming for Plumas County youth; to The Spot in Greenville, to assist in purchasing rest facilities; and to Indian Valley Butchers to help them purchase a refrigerated truck. Due to the impact of recent fires, proposals with the intent of addressing post-fire needs will be given priority.

The fund intends to provide three or four grants of $5,000 to $10,000. Interested parties should complete the application available on the fund’s website at Applications can also be obtained by contacting Feather River Community Fund secretary Marsha Roby at (530) 394-7095; questions may also be directed to her.
