The City of Georgetown is now accepting applications from eligible nonprofit agencies for Strategic Partnerships for Community Services grant funding for the city’s 2020-21 fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1, a May 6 news release said.

“We are excited to provide this opportunity to partner with our local nonprofits to help meet needs in our community,” Mayor Dale Ross said in the release. “Now more than ever, we are aware of the critical role they play in providing a safety net of support for our residents.”



Application forms and supplemental materials should be filled out and submitted no later than 5 p.m. on June 1. Funding decisions will be made by the City Council in compliance with the policy and funding guidelines subject to the availability of funds. Grants will be awarded in a range from $10,000-$50,000.

The Strategic Partnerships for Community Services Advisory Board, which is appointed by City Council, will review the applications received, the release said. The board will then make funding recommendations to City Council for potential approval in the 2020-21 fiscal year.
