In addition, pilot projects can be considered for this fund. Organizations that are currently receiving funding from either the Children and Youth Commission or the Human Services Committee must apply for a different project/program and organizations can apply only once every six months.
Amount: Organizations can apply for $2,500 or $5,000. Direct administrative costs for the program shall not exceed 30%.
Eligibility: Non-profit organizations that have been granted and currently hold tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or applicants whose programs are covered by a fiscal agent that meets these requirements. Applicants currently receiving city funding may apply for either the Children and Youth Commission or the Human Service’s Innovation and Small Grant funds; applicants will need to disclose all current city funding.
Note: The deadline of January 17, 2020 applies only if funds have not been expended by that date. Applicants are encouraged to apply earlier than the deadline.
