The Homer Foundation announces that application forms for the 2018 City of Homer Grants Program are now available. The grants program is funded through an annual allocation from the City of Homer in addition to the earnings from the City of Homer Fund and the Kachemak City Fund at the Homer Foundation.
The intent of the City of Homer Grants Program is to support locally-based non-profit organizations that provide services primarily within the City of Homer. The applicants must be IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations, in existence in Homer a minimum of 3 years, with their primary facility and core programs, activities and services offered within the Homer City limits. This is a competitive grants process.
The organization must be administered locally with a local policy-making board of directors. The organization may have no other financial or in-kind support from the City of Homer in the prior calendar year. The funding is for general operating support.
Application deadline is 5pm, Friday, February 16, 2018.
