(Suspended until further notice)

As you know, we are all facing unprecedented times and are operating in an environment of uncertainty and evolving needs. Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic the San Pablo City Council declared a Local Emergency and launched modified city operations, effective March 16, 2020. The local emergency declaration enabled the activation of the City’s Emergency Operations Center and transformed City Operations to an “essential services” mode of operation with closure of non-essential City facilities and limited public services.

During the San Pablo City Council meeting on April 6, 2020, City Council passed Resolution 2020-038, which authorizes the FY 2020/21 Annual San Pablo Community Foundation Grant program material. Because of these uncertain times, the Resolution also authorizes a temporary suspension in the issuance of said grant program materials due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Therefore, we are temporarily suspending the proposed timeline due to the unforeseen impacts until further notice.
