Alameda County Supervisor for District 3

The Third District includes the cities of Alameda, San Leandro, a portion of Oakland, including Chinatown, Jack London, Fruitvale, and San Antonio neighborhoods. District 3 also includes the unincorporated communities of San Lorenzo and Hayward Acres.

ARPA Cash Aid Grants

Due to the high number of applications received, determining recipients for the Supervisorial District 3 Community Needs Cash Aid Grants was not an easy process. Unfortunately, we could not fund every applicant, and I regret to inform the community that my office is no longer accepting applications for the Supervisorial District 3 Community Needs Cash Aid Grants. 

As the demand for services drastically increased due to the hardships caused by this global health crisis, our community organizations have continued to provide high quality services throughout District 3 and Alameda County. I extend my deepest gratitude to our service providers for their unwavering commitment to supporting our community and to our businesses and chambers of commerce for their enormous contributions to our local economy. 

I invite organizations and businesses located in District 3 to subscribe to our Biweekly Newsletter to learn about any future ARPA grant opportunities as they are announced. Early Care and Education (ECE) providers may be eligible for a 2022 County of Alameda Licensed Provider Grant. For more information or to apply, visit the 2022 County of Alameda Licensed Provider Grant webpage. 

Remembering Supervisor Chan and Her Legacy

Dear Alameda County community,

I would like to extend my gratitude to the community for your moving remembrances of Supervisor Wilma Chan these past few weeks. Nearly 2,700 community members joined us – both in-person and online, from California to the East Coast – on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, as we honored a dedicated and passionate leader and paid tribute to her extraordinary legacy.  

For those who were unable to view the live broadcast, the recording is available on the official County of Alameda YouTube channel: Community Celebration of Supervisor Wilma Chan and her Legacy.

I would also like to thank our speakers for sharing their personal experiences working with Supervisor Chan and their touching tributes to her steadfast commitment to serving and listening to the community, fighting for justice and equity, and changing the world for the better.  


We have much ahead of us to carry on Wilma’s work. I am humbled and inspired by the outpouring of support from the many community members who want to step up to do just that. We have a lot of work to do. Her legacy matters. Deeply. Profoundly. 

With Gratitude,
Supervisor Dave Brown
