Local Initiatives

Thank you for your interest in applying for City Council discretionary funding. The application filing period for Fiscal Year 2023 is now open, and I look forward to partnering with non-profit organizations that build community resilience in our neighborhoods and in our city. 

To understand more about discretionary funding policies and procedures, click here. Please be aware that the application deadline for discretionary funds closes on Tuesday, February 22, 2022 at 11:59PM. Late applications will not be eligible for Council funding. 

To apply for FY2023 discretionary funding, click here.

Our office will require one supplemental form from applicants upon intake. You can find that intake form here.  In addition, for reporting purposes, we will require of those groups who are approved for discretionary funding through our office an additional supplemental form upon close of the award period. This brief questionnaire will be posted here in the coming weeks, and will be due on December 31 for approved grantees only.
