Micro Enrichment Grants

The request must be processed through the MEG Form provided by the Chief Executive Officer’s office. Requests must meet the criteria established within the scope of the District Mission and Board Adopted Health Priorities. Allocated funds will be released in two funding periods to be designated each year. Applicants must apply through this competitive process in one of these two windows to be considered for funding. Applications received outside of the application period will not be considered. Multiple projects may be bundled on one application not to exceed $5,000.
  • Individuals or groups requesting MEG must be legal residents of or provide services to residents in the three Beach Cities.
