Most groups who have received funding from our office in the past have already received this valuable information. However, if you are looking to apply for funding, and have not been made aware of the process, please read on.
We'd like to tell you about this year's funding request process. The application period is shorter than it has been in years past. The deadlines for applying for Council funds are as follows:
Expense funding request deadline: March, 31, 2009
Capital funding request deadline: April 24, 2009
The forms are available on the City Council's website:
Full instructions are also available at that website. Please get the applications to our City Hall office as soon as you can, so that we can let you know if anything is missing or needs to be clarified. Please remember that submitting an application for funds does not guarantee that you will receive funding. After the City budget is passed in late June, our office will send letters to groups that receive funding.
Thank you for the work you do in our communities.
Office of Council Member Letitia James
