Grant Writing Services Being Moved In-House

As of Jan 1, 2021, the City’s grant writing services were moved in-house to increase the focus on City projects and programs. This will greatly reduce the time available to assist non-profit community groups, but it is a necessary step in the City’s strategic priority to reduce it’s fiscal gap. The new grant writer will continue to assist groups that have an active application underway, but any future requests from non-profit community groups will be referred elsewhere. Should the City’s ability to provide community organizations with grant writing assistance return, we will be sure to let you know.
