Education

Capital funding available; find out how to apply

I want the broadest possible pool of applications for the next fiscal year’s capital funding projects. Capital grants are long-term investments in property or equipment, as opposed to expenses such as salaries, utilities, or consumables.

My office capital grants available to community based non-profits and public schools. But not every school or non-profit is aware of our grant program.

That’s the purpose of information sessions my staff conducts to educate applicants as to the capital process timeline and requirements. Grant applications open in December, 2017 for the FY 2019 budget year beginning in July, 2018—but our grant process begins with these workshops.

Public schools can apply for these grants, and we’re running two events for schools and for nonprofits both downtown and uptown:
