Community Funding Requests Due August 31st

Now is also the time for organizations seeking financial support from the City in 2013 to submit their Community Funding Requests. The City supports the community by providing resources to non-governmental organizations for projects that supplement municipal government operations and enhance the quality of life in our community. It is usually not possible to fund all requests, and each one is objectively evaluated and prioritized. A form is available to submit requests in a format that helps staff and elected officials rank each request based on seven factors described on the projects priority criteria form. Requests must be received by August 31st to be considered in the next budget year. Off cycle requests will also be considered, subject to the availability of funds. Funding decisions are made by City Council in an open meeting.
