Grant Hearings

Monday, January 23 and Tuesday, January 24, 2023
Following review of your grant application by the Board, the Board will conduct hearings for all applicants. These hearings are designed to allow your group to present your proposal and to answer any questions the Board might have.

You must have a representative/spokesperson at our grant hearing on either Monday, January 23 or Tuesday, January 24, 2023. The hearings will commence at 5 p.m. All representatives/groups will be given a pre-assigned time period for their presentations. Advanced notice of your time slot will be provided by the Recreation Board.

The representative/spokesperson will give a brief overview of the grant application, how it fits with the Board’s mission, and the reasons for applying for funding. Please limit your presentation to 5 MINUTES, after which the Board may ask questions.

Thank you for your time, efforts, and consideration of the granting guidelines. Please feel free to call or email the Board if you have questions, and good luck.
