Grants to Newport News, Virginia nonprofit organizations that provide valuable community services and work to enhance the quality of life for local residents. Proposals will be considered for new services or the expansion of existing services. Funding may be requested for both programmatic and capital support.

A goal of the process is to encourage community, local, and citizen support for programs so that city funds can be replaced with funds from other sources. This will allow the city funds to be directed toward new programs in the future.

Funding is intended to:

-Provide funding to not-for-profit agencies serving the city of Newport News whose services are easily accessible to Newport News residents and whose service costs can be documented.

-Provide incentive funding to develop new services or capital improvements to meet specific needs of Newport News residents and to complement services provided by city departments.

Capital Funding: Agencies may request funding from the city of Newport News for capital improvements, equipment purchases and extraordinary or special events. The following definitions apply to requests for funding in this category:

-Capital Improvement: any new or replacement project designed to add to or replace buildings, major building components (ex. HVAC systems) or other infrastructure. Repair or renovation projects qualifying for capitalization rather than expensing also qualify as capital improvements.

-Extraordinary Events: an expense so unusual in type or amount as to be accorded special treatment. Generally, these expenses are unplanned and result from destruction of property due to catastrophic events such as extreme weather or fire.

-Special Events: an expense associated with an event that occurs without regularity. Examples are festivals, fairs, shows, participation in regional, state or national competitions, etc., which do not occur annually.

Applicants must provide evidence of 501(c)(3) status, or proof of application for 501(c)(3) status.

To apply, submit one hardcopy and one electronic set of all information to the Department of Budget and Evaluation no later than 5:00 PM on January 13, 2017.

The applications will be reviewed for completeness. The agency will be contacted if significant information is lacking. It is the responsibility of the agency to provide the missing information within 5 working days of notification.

Applications received after the published deadline will be deemed ineligible for a grant in the upcoming budget year. Applications will also be disqualified if all required information is not provided or corrected within 5 days as set forth above.
