City seeks applicants for Service to the Community Grant
The City of Montgomery is currently seeking applications for the Service to the Community Grant program. This grant program is open to all not-for-profit and local service organizations that have innovative ideas and the skills necessary to execute creative community projects benefiting or engaging the citizens of Montgomery.
Service to the community is defined as providing a beneficial service, project, or event that engages or improves the quality of life of Montgomery residents.
The maximum of $2,500 may be awarded to any one applicant. Last year, Operation Give Back received a grant for their WeTHRIVE! Food Bundle packs. Packs contained fresh fruit, fresh produce and healthy snacks along with healthy cooking recipe cards and healthy information fact sheets. They were made available to 35 Montgomery area families who were either seniors, living with chronic diseases, or were food insecure. Learn more at watchusthrive.org.
Organizations are invited to attend a pre-application meeting on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 4:00 p.m., in the Montgomery City Hall Council Chambers to learn more about the grant program and the expected timeline. To review the grant application, go to Service To The Community Grant Guidelines 2019-2020. Applications are due by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, April 1, 2019.
