By Jim Roberts

The City of Indio is inviting nonprofit organizations and local governmental agencies to apply for funding under its annual Community Grant/Sponsorship Program. Made available by the Indio City Council, the program is for the current fiscal year, with a total of $45,000 available, and runs through June 30, 2022.

The deadline to apply is September 30, 2021. Applications can be found here and submitted by email to jcurtis@indio.org.

“The Indio Community Grant/Sponsorship Program gives all nonprofits that serve our city, regardless of size, the opportunity to receive funding for whatever they might need to better our community,” said Indio Mayor Elaine Holmes. “From team uniforms to fee waivers, this program represents what we can do to help pay it forward.”

The sponsorship program requirements are as follows:

1) To be eligible for in-kind assistance, a sponsorship or fee waiver, an organization must provide evidence that the activity will benefit the City of Indio or its residents by: (i) enhancing the quality of life or the delivery of services in Indio; or (ii) strengthening the business community in Indio, supporting the city’s overall economic development program or enhancing Indio’s marketing capacity and recognition in the region.

2) To be eligible for monetary assistance in the form of a grant, an organization must be a local governmental entity serving citizens of the City of Indio, or a recognized non-profit organization as described by the Internal Revenue Code, such as 501(c)3, that is in good standing in the State of California and one that provides services or other community benefits to the residents of Indio by: (i) enhancing the quality of life or the delivery of services in Indio; or (ii) strengthening the business community in Indio, supporting the city’s overall economic development program or enhancing Indio’s marketing capacity and recognition in the region.
