The City of Paducah applies for several government grants per year for various projects that are of a significant public benefit.  Grants applied for by the City are limited to grants that benefit a large area of the public, city-owned properties, or city run programs.  Limited assistance to non-profit agencies is also a common occurrance.  For most government type grants, a local govenment agency must be a partner in the project.  In most instances, the non-profit agency will supply the grant writer/administrator with information and the city will assist with the financial administration of the grant. 

In addition to govenment sponsored grants, many private corporations offer grants to private individuals, non-profits, or similar organizations.  For information on these types of grants, contact the Community Foundation of West Kentucky at 270-442-8622.
