Term of Contract:

Event or Project expenses must occur between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. Funding is granted for no more than a one year period of time, per application.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicant must be a nonprofit organization tax exempt under IRC 501(c)(3), organized for charitable, educational, scientific, or literary purposes; or, under IRC 501(c)(4) as a civic league, or social welfare organization; or, under IRC 501(c)(6) as a Chamber of Commerce, business league, etc.; or, a social club, or fraternal organization under 501(c)(7), 501 (c) (8), or 501(c)(10). In addition, an organization may be a Federal, state, or local governmental unit. If tax-exempt under IRC 501 (c), the determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service is required to apply. If an applicant is not registered as one of the 501(c) designations above they may partner with another 501(c) registered organization which can serve as a sponsor, as long as the non-profit intent is maintained.

The following are ineligible for funding:
- Events or projects that are primarily partisan or religious in nature;
- Facility development or items that are capital in nature;
- Elimination of prior debts or debt servicing;
- Fixed overhead costs (Example: calculating a portion of normal monthly rent for applicant and showing as an event/project cost. Holding the event should have no impact on on-going organization rent expense; however, if a separate space is rented specifically to hold the event – usually paid to an entity independent of normal rent or in an additional to normal rent – this expense is project/event related)
- Events/programs which do not promote Astoria tourism.
- Generally, expenditures not tied to promotion, marketing or production of the event or implementation of the project;

The deadline for submissions is February 28, 2020 by end of business (5:00 PM PST).
