2018 Town of Avon Community Grant Program

The Town of Avon welcomes applications from organizations and agencies seeking funding for programs, projects, services or activities that support the Town’s stated priorities in the Town of Avon 2017-19 Strategic Plan. The information below includes important information to help your organization apply for Town funding, including application submission requirements, review criteria and the application schedule.

While the Town of Avon will look at every opportunity for advancing partnerships with organizations in Avon to advance the Strategic Plan, monies to outside agencies are prioritized with all operational, service, and facility needs of the Town through the annual budget. In Fiscal Year 2017, the Town Council approved $170,560 in funding for community grants. This funding level is again targeted in 2018, but it is not guaranteed and is in the complete discretion of the Avon Town Council.

The 2018 funding decisions will be based solely upon an organization’s written application. No interviews with applicants will be held. An Ad Hoc Review Committee, comprised of citizens representing businesses and nonprofits, plus two Town staff persons will review all applications and make the funding recommendations. The Ad Hoc Review Committee’s funding recommendations will be incorporated into the annual proposed budget, which Council will take action on during a public hearing.

The following materials include all the information needed to prepare a funding application:

The deadline for application is August 25, 2017, at 5:00 p.m.
