Community Grants Program


Each fiscal year, the Laguna Niguel City Council provides grant funding for Community Services/Cultural Arts/Community Special Events programs. These funds are allocated by the City Council in recognition of the important role that the many human services organizations and cultural programs play within the community. 

Grants are available to non-profit organizations that provide services in Laguna Niguel for Laguna Niguel residents and/or provide services for students attending schools that serve Laguna Niguel residents.
