City of Chico Requests Proposals for Community Grant Program:

The City of Chico (COC) and North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) are inviting community organizations to submit grant proposals for the fiscal year 2017-2018.. The Community Grant Program was developed to leverage City funding to engage citizens and empower nonprofits to build sustainable funding practices. Rather than being a primary source of funding, the Community Grant Program requires the selected participants to raise funds in the community from August 1 through August 31. Grant awards are based on a percentage of the funds that each organization raises, up to the first $10,000 raised. For information on the grant requirements and to access the online application, click here. The application process is open from May 1 to June 2, 2017.
