Community Grant Program

The Town of Frederick is pleased to sponsor community organizations and community-minded individuals offering programming for the benefit of the community.  

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 entity must demonstrate a financial need and exhibit how the event connects to the Frederick Community.

The Town is able to provide both direct financial support and some types 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 requirements of the application and on the merits of the project as described in the application. 

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 complete and appropriate for Board review.

Everyone receiving funds will be required to submit a follow-up report on the event/project and the use of funds.  The report must be provided to the Town Board within 60 days following the completion date of the project, event, etc. Failure to submit a report could impact future grant awards from the Town.
