Mark Bennett

Please read the following message from CCS General Chair, Mike Carpenter:

"As the COVID-19 pandemic is presenting our member clubs with unprecedented financial challenges, the Central California Swimming Board of Directors met via Zoom on April 22, 2020 to discuss ways in which the LSC could offer assistance.   The Board unanimously voted to set aside up to $75,000 from current LSC reserves to establish a grant fund to assist member clubs that are in need.  Grants will be requested through an application process.  Grants will be approved by a 6-member task force made up of LSC representatives.  The grant program will begin effective May 1, 2020.    A maximum of $25,000 in grants will be made available in first month. Any unspent funds from the first month will carry over to the second and third month (June and July 2020).   Grant applications will be available Wednesday April 29, 2020 and will be accepted beginning that same date.

"Below is the link to the newly created CCS grant application.  A link to the grant application will also be posted on the CCS website.  The grant application process is now open and clubs may begin to submit applications beginning today (Wednesday April 29).  Applications will be required for each of the 3 months of the program (May, June and July) as needs change.  The first round of applications will be reviewed by the grant task force the afternoon of Monday May 4th.  If you have any questions, please contact me.   Be well.  Mike Carpenter – ph. 209-769-2007 (cell)."
