Funding Guidelines & Application

In order to accommodate historically low funding levels, the Community Development Board has previously implemented priority budgeting resulting in program elimination / drastic reductions. In 2012, the Community Development Board and City Council eliminated grant programs for non-profit organizations, opting for sustainable programs creating program income through City-managed loans.
