Carlsbad CA— The City of Carlsbad is now accepting applications for the 2014-15 Community Activity Grants program. Through this grant program, $10,000 will be available to community service groups or individuals in Carlsbad. The grants are designed to provide programs that enhance the quality of life for the Carlsbad community. Programs or projects that enhance a neighborhood, or neighborhoods, within Carlsbad are strongly encouraged.
The Community Activity Grants are intended to provide funding for services that may not be eligible under other programs, such as Community Development Block Grants. Organizations currently receiving funding from another city program are not eligible for a Community Activity Grant.
In the past, recipients of a Community Activity Grant were limited to three years of funding. Three year grant recipients may now reapply for this grant, as long as they have not received funding in the last two years.
To apply for the grant, an application must be completed and received no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 5, at the City of Carlsbad’s Housing & Neighborhood Services Department, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive. Applications will be reviewed by a public committee. The committee will then make a recommendation to the City Council for final approval in March 2015.
