In 2019, Supervisor Lynda Hopkins advocated for and received $1.5 million in Flood Mitigation Funds from the state in response to the February 2019 Russian River floods. $200,000 of these funds is now available for non-profit organizations addressing key needs within the communities most affected by the floods along the Lower Russian River. Non-profits who are interested in receiving a portion of the funds must complete the below grant application in order to have their project considered.
