Kingsburg Micro-Grant Program 

The City of Kingsburg (“City”) has adopted a micro-grant program intended to provide funding for the support of a myriad of improvement activities in our community. While all projects will be considered, the main purpose of the grant is to support the following strategic priorities: 

  •  Beautifying a public space/park
  •  Support community programs/group activities 
  •      Provide a safety benefit
  •  Improve overall quality of life in our community 
  •  Promote sustainable economic development

The Program provides for reimbursement (“Reimbursement”) to an approved applicant of the costs actually paid with a Reimbursement range up to $15,000. 


ALL PROJECT ACTIVITIES MUST BE APPROVED PRIOR TO WORK COMMENCING.

1. Individual grant awards are up to $15,000. Based upon applications that are deemed exemplary, meet more than one of the strategic initiatives and receive above 85% of the potential points, Council may choose to authorize up to a total of $25,000 in matching funds (subject to funding availability).

7. Depending upon the project, applicants may be required to provide additional budget quotes. 

8. Grant funds cannot pay for personal property, charitable donations, alcohol, faith-based 2 Kingsburg Micro-Grant Program activities (faith groups can apply if the project meets a community need), operational costs, items that will be donated/raffled/auctioned, or political campaigning.
