The Vernon CommUNITY Fund Grant Committee consists of seven members including two persons representing members of the California Legislature, three persons that reside or work in the Vernon area, one Business Representative and one current Council Member. Each member serves a two-year term and shall serve no more than three consecutive terms. The Committee meets regularly bi-annually (May and November) on the third Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. in the Vernon Council Chambers. (Municipal Code Section 2.155)
As one of the key elements of the City's good governance reforms, the City Council created the VCF to provide grants to charitable and governmental entities for projects and programs that benefit those residing and working in Vernon. Given the exclusively industrial nature of Vernon , the City Council determined that the VCF was in the best interest of the City and its residents, business and workers.
