Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $2,500 to Dubuque, Iowa nonprofit organizations, business and unincorporated resident groups to promote environmental sustainability through community engagement or education. Sustainability is defined by a community’s ability to meet the environmental, economic, and social equity needs of today without reducing the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

All requests must address at least one of the 12 sustainability principles: regional economy, smart energy use, resource management, community design, green building, healthy local foods, community knowledge, reasonable mobility, healthy air, clean water, community health and safety, and native plants and animals.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $2,500.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any group of individuals located within Dubuque city limits is eligible to apply. “Group” can refer to a nonprofit, business, club, organization, neighborhood association, or group of individuals, provided one individual is willing to be the primary contact who is responsible for fiscal interactions and measurement of impact.

Prior applications: Applicants who have received funding are not eligible for additional funding for one calendar year from the date of their award. Groups who were unsuccessful in previous applications may compete in future rounds with the project originally proposed, or with new projects.

Pre-Application Information:

Grants can be submitted at any time during the calendar year, although they will be reviewed based on quarterly deadlines available at http://www.cityofdubuque.org/sustainability.

Grants will be awarded to all worthy projects during quarterly reviews, and so money will be available on a “first come-first serve” basis beginning July 1 each year to coincide with the City’s fiscal year. This means that if all funding is allocated by the December review, new funds would not be available for this program until July 1 of the following year.

Completed applications should be sent to cburbach@cityofdubuque.org.
