General Fund Grant Program

Program Overview

The General Fund Grant Program provides funding to non-profit organizations located within the City of Malibu that benefit residents of the community.

The application period opens at the beginning of each year, and all applications submitted are reviewed by the City Council Administration and Finance Subcommittee in late spring. The Subcommittee makes recommendations to the City Council for award during the annual budget approval process each June.

LA County Discretionary Funding Grants

The County of Los Angeles offers Discretionary Funding Grants (DFG), also referred to as Social Programs, which are established pursuant to Government Code Section 26227. DFG are district-specific and are allocated at the discretion of each Los Angeles County Supervisor. Supervisor Sheila Kuehl has established a Discretionary Funding program that is intended to award grants to a variety of Third District organizations for projects that promote and enhance the quality of life for Third District Constituents. 

The DFG program has two application periods, in May and November of each year. Applications must be submitted to Supervisor Kuehl's office by the first day of April and October. During each funding cycle, individual DFG requests will be carefully reviewed and considered for possible funding by the Supervisor. While Supervisor Kuehl cannot accommodate all requests, all DFG requests will be given careful and due consideration.
