Highland Village City Council on Nov. 10 approved more than $46,000 in grant funding for nonprofits working in the community.
The Lewisville ISD Education Foundation, Denton County Friends of the Family and Special Abilities of North Texas were among the recipients of the largest grants in this year’s pool, each receiving at least $5,000.
In their applications this year, nonprofits requested 15% more than the city had budgeted for nonprofit grants, which required the city to whittle down the size of some of the requests.
Overall, however, Mayor Charlotte Wilcox said the nonprofits appeared to consider the city’s tight budget when making their requests.
“I would like to say how much I appreciate [the nonprofits] taking into consideration the situation that the cities are all in this year,” Wilcox said. “This is a different year, and we’ve said that over and over and over. But I think they did take that into consideration.”
