(Formerly Nonprofit Discretionary Grants)
The application process for local partnership funding is currently being reviewed by Littleton city council and staff. Information and updated application guidelines should be available in early 2019.
Each year the Littleton City Council considers requests for discretionary grants from nonprofit organizations that serve Littleton residents and awards the grants to the organizations during the budget process. Requests may include operational, one-time special purpose grants, or event sponsorships (in-kind or cash).
This is a competitive process as council always receives more requests than it has funds available. Requests funded range from a few hundred dollars to over $20,000.
Application Guidelines for 2019
Applications for the 2019 budget year closed June 30, 2018.
Late applications will not be accepted. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions upon city council’s adoption of next year's budget in December. All requests for cash and/or in-kind support MUST be completed online. Council cannot consider any requests without a completed application. Late applications will not be accepted.
Examples of cash or in-kind requests include:
- Police, fire, and/or streets crew services at your event;
- A city council table at your fundraiser;
- Support for one of your programs, etc.
