Kern Recovers Extends Deadline for Nonprofit Grant Program

Bakersfield contributed $2M to program for City organizations

The Kern Recovers Nonprofit Grant Program has opened a second application window, extending its deadline for programs to be considered for the grant to Nov. 18, 2020.

In September the City of Bakersfield committed $2 million in Coronavirus Aide, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds to this Kern Recovers program. That contribution is only available to nonprofits located within the City limits.

Grants in increments of $5,000, $10,000 and $20,000 are available for qualifying nonprofit organizations.

The original application deadline for the grant program was October 15, and since then all applicants have been notified of their award status. Applicants will be notified of their award status by Dec. 2, 2020.
