RAP Foundation Grantmaking

The Regional Access Project Foundation’s Vision is to enhance the quality of life for all residents of eastern Riverside County by investing in nonprofits and empowering them to effectively serve unmet needs identified by the RAP Board of Directors. Our grants are designed to accomplish  this vision.

Our Grant Applications are available for qualified nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and governmental agencies. The following restrictions apply:

    • The program, service or project must benefit the residents of the Supervisorial District 4 of Riverside County.
    • Programs funded must address one or more of our Focus Areas: Health, Mental Health or Juvenile Intervention.
    • Funding requests cannot be for fundraiser events.

Funding is open all year and applications can be submitted at any time. 

Once an application is submitted, the review process takes between 30 to 60 days. If the application is accepted, you will be required to attend a Grants Review Committee meeting either by web conference or in person at RAP’s office, to give a presentation of your project/program lasting no more than three (3) minutes). The Grants Review Committee will make a recommendation which will be considered by the Full Board of Directors at their next scheduled meeting.
