MALIBU—The city released the list of recipients of grants for the Fiscal Year 2023/2024 General Fund Grant Program which awards grants each year to local non-profit organizations whose efforts benefit the community on its website on Monday, September 25.

“As a part of the annual budgeting process, the City Council has regularly set aside funds that can be granted to worthy recipients,” said Mayor Bruce Silverstein. “In making recommendations to the full City Council, the Administration & Finance Subcommittee, on which I sit with Councilmember Doug Stewart, we used as a guide that funds should be granted to causes that are both Malibu-based and provide a benefit to the Malibu community. We were blessed with many worthy local causes, and we recommend some level of award to all applicants that satisfied our criteria for a grant, which the City Council unanimously approved.”
