One-Time Capital Grants 


To further fulfill its mission to enhance the early development of Tulare County’s children, the First 5 Tulare County Commission has released a Request for Proposals (RFP). The RFP includes a total of $200,000 for one-time capital projects. Direct services will NOT be funded under this program.  Sole proprietors are not eligible to apply.  A maximum single award is $40,000

The Commission seeks proposals from organizations that serve Tulare County’s pregnant women and children zero through five years of age.  The RFP includes application guidance. 

The Capital Project Grant program provides funding to purchase items with a value greater than $5,000 or to fund building renovation or construction projects which promote enhanced mental and physical health among children or ensure that children are ready for school and families are able to promote their children’s development.  Capital projects require a 25 percent match.

Beginning on January 10, 2020, applications can be downloaded on our website, or copies can be obtained by contacting the First 5 Commission office located at 200 N. Santa Fe Street, Visalia, CA 93292.  Proposals are due at noon on February 14, 2020, and projects will commence on July 1, 2020.
