June 15 is the deadline to apply for Chancellor’s Community Partnership Fund grants, a new program of grants to Berkeley community groups, non-profit organizations and neighborhood associations. The grants (minimum $5,000 per grant, from a pool of $200,000 this year) are to be offered yearly through at least 2020. Projects must address the physical environment of Berkeley neighborhoods or facilities that serve the community, or community support and service projects that enhance the economic, social or cultural well-being of Berkeley residents. They must have as partner an academic or administrative department, or individual faculty and staff members or students.
