Grant Programs


The Headwaters Competitive Grant Fund supports projects that benefit Humboldt County’s competitive economic advantage. The Humboldt County Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), known as Prosperity! 2018, outlines six business clusters and four major industries that are targeted for their growth potential. Preference is given to projects that maintain and increase the number of sustainable jobs paying near or above the median income, enhance the quality of life, and promote healthy communities while protecting the natural environment.
