Sixty-six grants totaling more than $890,000 have been handed out to Richmond organizations by the city.
The city’s annual community grants program provides funding to local non-profits to help ensure community needs are met. Grants fall into one of four categories: health, social and safety services; arts and culture; childcare and parks, recreation and community events.
“The City's grant programs help fund hundreds of relevant services and initiatives offered by non-profit organizations throughout Richmond,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie in a press release.
“The recipients of these grants develop, implement and sustain programs which are vital to the quality of life and diverse needs of our community.”
The city asks for grant applications every fall and some community groups may qualify for multi-year funding. The grants are not intended to be a primary funding source for the organization, however.
More information on the grants and the application process can be found on the city’s website.
