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 2020 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 2020, the Town Council approved $92,000 in funding for community grants. This funding level is again targeted in 2021, but it is not guaranteed and is in the complete discretion of the Avon Town Council.
The 2021 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 several 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.
