Nonprofit organizations can apply for grants as part of the city budget, which takes effect each July 1. All requests are reviewed by the Community Agency Allocation Committee, which includes citizens appointed by the Mayor and City Council.

The committee, aided by city staff, sends their grant recommendations to the City Manager via the Budget & Evaluation Office. The City Manager considers those recommendations for inclusion in the proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The Mayor and City Council approve the final allocations. Grant funding comes from various federal, state and city initiatives.
