Community Grants Program


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

Grants are available only 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.
