In 2004, voters in Santa Rosa passed Measure O, a quarter-cent Transaction and Use Tax to provide critical funding for gang prevention programming. Beginning in 2006, the Measure O CHOICE Grant Program was created to provide a variety of youth and parenting programs, which focus on gang and anti-violence education, prevention and intervention, community safety, and a comprehensive array of social services in high need neighborhoods.

The City of Santa Rosa provides mini-grant opportunities for schools and non-profit 501 (c)(3) organizations for capacity building needs to provide youth and gang violence prevention and intervention services in our community.
Measure O CHOICE Mini-Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until all available funds are expended and can only be used towards future programs (not retroactively).
