Strategic Partnerships for Community Services Grant Funding

The City of Georgetown is now accepting applications from eligible 501(c)3 agencies for Strategic Partnerships for Community Services Grant Funding for the City’s 2016-17 fiscal year, which begins October 1, 2016.

To apply for funds, the attached application form and supplemental materials should be filled out and submitted no later than May 16, 2016 (deadline date). Funding decisions will be made by the City Council in compliance with the attached Policy and Funding Guidelines subject to the availability of funds. If you should have any questions regarding the Application or the Policy and Guidelines, you may reach me at shirley.rinn@georgetown.org or 512-930-3723.

The City Council voted to revise the policy and guidelines for this program on April 8, 2014. The new Policies and Guidelines are attached for your information. The minimum grant that can be applied for is $10,000 and the maximum grant that can be applied for is $50,000.

Additionally, the City Council established the Strategic Partnerships for Community Services (SPCS) Advisory Board that will review and score all of the applications that are received. The SPCS Advisory Board will then make funding recommendations to the City Council for potential approval in the FY 2016-17 Grant Cycle. Another change in the previous procedure will be that the City will no longer require the agencies who apply for funding to make presentations to the Council or to the SPCS Advisory Board.

Please review the Policy and Guidelines, the instructions for the Program Addendum, Program Budget and the Grant Application very carefully to ensure that ALL sections of the Program Addendum, Program Budget, and the Grant Application are completed in their entirety in accordance with the instructions and that all signatures are in place where required on the Application form.  The Applications will be scored based on the agencies’ eligibility per the Policy and Guidelines, as well as the completeness of the applications. ONLY MATERIALS SUBMITTED WITH THIS APPLICATION WILL RECEIVE FUNDING CONSIDERATION.  INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED FOR FUNDING.
