NorCalPCA's Grants Program provides funds for community development projects all around our planet. Money for grants is raised through a special Grants Fund separate from NorCal's Intercultural Education and Readjustment Services Programs which are supported through general donations and memberships. While there is no minimum-maximum size, most grants average from $500-$2000 depending on the amount requested and funds available.
