Date of release: February 12, 2020
The City of Paducah is accepting applications for a Grant-in-Aid Program for non-profit agencies and for agencies providing a municipal service that meets the needs of the City. For the Fiscal Year 2021 budget, the City has set aside $1,474,880. Agencies interested in applying are encouraged to attend one of two workshops to review the application process. The workshops will be at City Hall on Thursday, February 20 at 4 p.m. and Monday, February 24 at noon.
The Grant-in-Aid Categories are as follows:
City Manager Jim Arndt says, “Each year, the City of Paducah provides financial assistance to several organizations that help us by providing either a municipal service or a program or project that benefits this community’s quality of life. With a limited availability of funds, we want to create a structured process that provides our Grant-in-Aid Review Panel with detailed information in order to make the best recommendations possible for funding.”
“In simple terms, we are asking organizations to tell us what your needs may be, how your program or project benefits this community, and how we may be able to help,” adds Arndt.
Visit Grant-In-Aid for application guidelines and forms. The application deadline is March 31. Please note that except for the Core Services Grant, each agency must be a 501(c)(3) organization. Also, any agency receiving United Way funding will not be eligible for grant funds through the City of Paducah. Agencies that have received funding in the past WILL need to submit applications.
