Nate Miley

Alameda County Supervisor for District 4
Vice President of the Board of Supervisors

The Fourth Supervisorial District includes portions of the City of Oakland, the City of Pleasanton including the adjacent Unincorporated Communities of Castlewood and Happy Valley, as well as Ashland, Castro Valley, Cherryland, El Portal Ridge, Fairmont Terrace, Fairview and Hill Crest Knolls.  Supervisor Miley was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2000, and was appointed Vice President of the Board of Supervisors in 2020.

Welcome

It’s an honor to serve you on the Board of Supervisors, where I proudly represent portions of the City of Oakland, the City of Pleasanton and the Unincorporated Communities of Ashland, Castro Valley, Cherryland, El Portal Ridge, Fairmont Terrace, Fairview and Hillcrest Knolls. As a former Oakland City Councilmember, the Founder and President of the United Seniors of Oakland and Alameda County, as well as a longtime community organizer, I remain deeply committed to:

  1. Community engagement and to using my office to empower community members; and
  2. Delivery of quality County programs, include vital social safety net and public safety services; and
  3. Equitable delivery of services to you and to the communities I serve.

Throughout my time in elected office, I’ve fought to protect open space, strengthen our healthcare system, and create more livable and safe neighborhoods, while improving transportation, air quality, healthcare, public safety, and social services. I authored legislation to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable and to create the nation’s first no-cost drug disposal ordinance, championed the successful passage of Measure A which raises $100 million annually to support vital health care programs within Alameda County and worked to ensure that communities have a voice within local government.

As I always say, some my best ideas come from you – my constituents. Please do not hesitate contact me if I can ever be of any assistance. Email me here.

    Program Details

    In response to the negative economic, health, and safety impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on local non-profit and business organizations, the County of Alameda is launching a new program, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Supervisorial District Community Needs Cash Aid Grants program. This new program will infuse much needed cash aid into the community and spur Alameda County’s economic recovery.

    The County has allocated $3.1 million to each Supervisorial District for the ARPA Supervisorial District Community Needs Cash Aid Grants program with the goal that each Supervisorial District will provide cash aid grants that reflect the geographic and cultural diversity of Alameda County, prioritizing organizations operated by or serving populations and communities that were disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Organizations that have experienced negative economic impacts caused by COVID-19 during the period March 1, 2020, to the present are eligible to apply for a cash aid grant under this program. Cash aid grants may be awarded beginning April 11, 2022, through September 30, 2024. Cash aid grants are subject to availability of funds within each Supervisorial District’s $3.1 million allocation, eligibility of applicants, and any other relevant factors.

    Through the application process, applicants must demonstrate and attest to the harm and economic loss sustained by the organization due to the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Applications that are not adequately documented may be rejected. Additionally, not all worthy applications will necessarily be funded.

    Eligible organizations may receive cash aid grants up to the maximum amount of $100,000 per Supervisorial District based on demonstrated and qualifying impacts. However, the total amount of cash aid grant funds awarded to an organization by the County as part of the ARPA Supervisorial District Community Needs Cash Aid Grants program cannot exceed the amount of the organization’s losses due to the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ARPA guidelines require that the cash aid grants be reasonably proportional to the negative economic impacts they are intended to address. Economic losses that were reimbursed through insurance or other sources cannot be used to qualify for a cash aid grant. Each applicant is required to provide the demographic makeup of the organization and basic demographic information about the population served as part of the completed application.

    All Alameda County ARPA Supervisorial District Community Needs Cash Aid Grants must be approved by the Board of Supervisors at a regularly scheduled meeting. By submitting an application, the organization agrees to maintain and provide records to the County during the U.S. Treasury Department audit period and agrees to fully cooperate with any audit by the County, the Federal government or their designees. If through an audit, or any other means, the County or US Treasury Department determines that because of fraud, misinformation provided by an organization, or for any other reason, that a cash aid grant is not an allowable ARPA expense, the applicant must agree to reimburse the funds to the County.

    How to apply:  Complete the following application and forms. When all the information is completed, sign the W-9 and the application. To submit the application by mail, send to:

    Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley, District 4
    County Administration Building
