More City Grants
February 3, 2005 - Non-profit organizations may apply for more than $82,000 awarded to the City of Knoxville to provide services for homeless individuals.

Grant recipients must provide matching funds or allowable in-kind contributions equal to the ESG funds awarded. The program is operated on a reimbursement basis; projects do not receive advance funds.

Applications will be rated based on how the proposal supports the goals identified in the 2004 Knoxville/Knox County Continuum of Care for the Homeless; the capacity of the applicant's organization to carry out a quality program/project within a one year contract period; and the availability of other resources and match needed to carry out the program/project.

Application packets are available beginning today by calling 865-215-2120 or from the City's web site at www.cityofknoxville.org/development/.

Completed applications must be received in the Community Development office by 4:30 p.m., Friday, March 4.

For more information, call Diana Gerard Lobertini or Mike Dunthorn at 865-215-2120.
