Community Promotion Grants

The Community Promotion Grant Program awards funding to nonprofit charitable and/or civic organizations in order to supplement existing funds that either create or enhance services that positively impact the greatest number of City residents. 

Priority will be given to programs supporting one or more of the following focus areas: 

  • Promotions and Arts
  • Senior Support/Aging in Place
  • Youth Development Needs

The Board of Aldermen adopted the Community Promotion Grant Policy (Resolution 17-18) on October 19, 2017. The purpose of the Policy is to formalize the process for the application and distribution of City funds to nonprofit organizations.
