All grants are made with the intention of enhancing the quality of life for Mahaska County citizens.

All efforts will be made to ensure that, over time, grant recipients will represent the entire geographic spectrum of Mahaska County. In addition, projects that appeal to and benefit broad segments of the population will receive special consideration.
