Organizations applying to the Community Services Grant program for the first time are eligible for a "Starter Grant". The "Starter Grant" allows first time applicants grant funding up to $500 if they demonstrate their commitment to provide services to the La Quinta community. If an organization is selected to receive the "Starter Grant" they would then be eligible to apply to the program again the next fiscal year.
Organizations that have been funded are ineligible for funding for the next fiscal year. Therefore, organizations that were funded before June 30, 2017 are now eligible to apply. Organizations that were funded after July 1, 2017 are ineligible for funding and must wait until July 1, 2019 to re-apply.
Organizations requesting seed funding must obtain matching funds from other sources in the same fiscal year before the grant funds will be released.
