Programs requesting grant funding must serve the residents of the City of Hickory.

Funding Priorities:

  1. Priority will be given to programs or projects which will have the greatest impact on positive human relations, that are most effective in bringing together the diverse populations of Hickory and which provide direct services and resources to the targeted populations(s).
  2. Additional priority will be given to projects for which in-kind services or matching funds are available provided the matching funds are not provided by the City of Hickory. Applicants are encouraged to be creative in developing projects that address real community needs.
