Community Funding Grants

The focus of Community Funding Grants is to encourage the growth and stability of non-profit groups and organizations in the City whose purpose and activities align to achieve the outcomes and strategic objectives of Livable Community and Economic Vitality program results.  To this end, the City may make available limited financial resources to groups and organizations in the form of a grant.

The grant must be applied to a specific program or service, or used as capital funding for the construction of facilities or the purchase of equipment that will benefit to the community at large. Grants for general administrative purposes or social services will not be considered.
