About Small Grants and Sponsorship Program
Sometimes big ideas need funding to realize their potential. The Small Grants and Sponsorship Program is an opportunity for small, emerging, and grassroots organizations to access funding for projects and programming that strengthen neighborhood livability and civic engagement.
The grants and sponsorships are designed to support community groups that have a low annual operating budget. Each grant can range from $3,000-$4,999, which can be a significant investment for community groups.
How is the Small Grants and Sponsorship Program Funded?
The Office of Community & Civic Life distributes $250,000 throughout the City’s seven District Offices. Each District Office creates its own specific grant eligibility criteria, application, and timeline.
The grants and sponsorships are geographically organized, meaning that applicants should apply for funding through the District Coalition Office that represents the area where the applicant’s project will happen. You can use this map to figure out which district office represents your area.
