A subcommittee of the Citizens Advisory Committee, which oversees the grant process and makes recommendations on funding to the City Council, will offer three application workshops from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, September 11, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Saturday, September 13, and from 11:30 to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 16.
All three workshops will be held in the City Council Chambers, 707 W. Acequia Ave., in Visalia. No reservations are necessary. Again, applicants must attend one workshop session as a prerequisite for submitting an application unless the agency was an award winner in FY 2013-14.
The Visalia Non-Profit Program Fund is available to qualified non-profit and government agencies with programs or services for people under age 18 in the City of Visalia. The fund is designed to assist agencies in providing gang prevention/intervention programs and for services aimed at improving quality of life for youth, including at-risk youth. The minimum award is $1,000, and the maximum amount is $6,500 for FY 2014-15.
Agencies may apply for funding for more than one project or program. A separate application must be completed for each program or project requesting funding. Priority will be given to requests for "seed" money to start new programs. Both capital expenditures that benefit the qualified program or project and operating funds also are eligible for funding.
An application for funding can be obtained at City Hall West (707 West Acequia), from the City's website (www.ci.visalia.ca.us ), or requested by email (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
The application and all required attachments must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Monday, September 22, 2014 at City of Visalia/CAC at 707 W. Acequia Ave., Visalia, CA 93291.
A subcommittee will review the applications and make recommendations to the Citizens Advisory Committee which will in turn make recommendations to the City Council for final approval.
