Community Grant Program

The Town is able to provide both direct financial support from its Oil Royalty Trust Fund and some kinds of in-kind support (i.e. police, Public Works assistance, etc.) to which a monetary value is assigned. Grants are awarded by the Town Board of Trustees based on the applicant meeting the basic requirements of application and on the merits of the project as described in the application. The Town wishes to provide assistance for programs, events or projects that contribute to the positive image of Frederick and provide opportunities for informal education, community building and family entertainment.

The Town strongly encourages applicants to speak with the Town Clerk, who processes the applications for the Board, before completing and submitting applications. The Town Clerk is able to answer questions and help ensure the application is appropriate for Board review and complete.
