Community Groups Funding Program
The city has long been a
supporter of local non-profit organizations that serve the Martinez community
and is now accepting applications from community organizations for the upcoming
Fiscal Year 2016-17, which starts July 1, 2016. The primary intent
of the funding provided by this program is to serve Martinez businesses and
residents. Applicants must be community-based, 501 (c) nonprofit organizations that
promote and provide services to residents and/or businesses in the city. Applicants
must explain how the proposed project or program will serve Martinez residents
Application forms are available at the City Clerk's office (Martinez City Hall) at 525 Henrietta Street. Please note that completed and signed applications for Fiscal Year 2016-17 must be submitted by 3pm on Friday, April 15, to the City Clerk's office, or scanned and sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be reviewed by city staff, considered by the Budget Subcommittee, and forwarded with recommendations to the City Council. A total of $7,500 from the General Fund was approved to support this program last year, and ten local organizations were approved to receive community grants.
