Community Organization Funding Application Now Open!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
CARBONDALE - 
The City of Carbondale is accepting funding applications from community agencies for the City’s Fiscal Year 2025 (May 1, 2024 – April 30, 2025). Each year, the City of Carbondale approves funding requests from various agencies and non-profits to allocate funds to support their work. To request funding, a fillable application may be found here. Please email your application materials and a copy of your organization’s 990s to Faith Johnson at fjohnson@explorecarbondale.com by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 23, 2024.

Staff will review and present the applications to the City Council for review and approval. Funding will be contingent on the availability of financial resources. Therefore, agencies should carefully consider the amount requested before completing the application, as there is no guarantee that the project will be funded. Past program performance, as well as proposed program content, will be considered in each funding decision. As the City evaluates the funding requests, funding may be reduced from the levels requested or denied.

For more information, please contact Faith Johnson at 618-457-3229.
