Community Group Funding Program
The City of Martinez has long been a supporter of local
non-profit organizations that serve the Martinez community. To help achieve
this objective, the city council adopted a Community Groups Funding Program in
March 2007. The city is now accepting applications from community organizations
for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2017-18, which starts July 1, 2017.
Application forms are available through the link below and at the city clerk’s office (Martinez City Hall) at 525 Henrietta Street. Please note that completed and signed applications for Fiscal Year 2017-18 must be submitted by 3pm on Friday, April 14, or scanned and sent via email to [email protected]. Applications will be reviewed by city staff, considered by the budget subcommittee, and forwarded with recommendations to the city council. A total of $7,676 from the general fund and $3,500 from the recycle fund were approved to support this program last year, and 11 local organizations were approved to receive community grants.
