Community Group Funding Program
The City has long been a supporter of local non-profit organizations that serve the Martinez community. To help achieve this objective, the City Council adopted a “Community Groups Funding Program” in March 2007. The City is now accepting applications from community organizations for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2017-18, which starts July 1, 2017.
Application forms are available by clicking the link below, and at the City Clerk’s office (Martinez City Hall) at 525 Henrietta Street. Please note that completed and signed applications for Fiscal Year 2017-18 must to be submitted by 3 p.m. on Friday, April 14th to the City Clerk’s office, or scanned and sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed by City staff, considered by the Budget Subcommittee and forwarded with recommendations to the City Council.
Please note that a total of $7,676 from the General Fund and $3,500 from the Recycle Fund were approved to support this program last year, and 11 local organizations were approved to receive community grants.
