Nonprofits: Want some city money?

The city’s challenge grant process has opened up. From a release:

The City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation Department is accepting applications for its 2013-14 Challenge Grant Program, which offers grants to nonprofit projects associated with public parks or recreation facilities within the City limits.

The grants are available this year to 501(c)3, 501(c)4, and 501(c)6 status community groups, homeowner associations, schools, scout troops and other organizations.

Recipients of a Challenge grant will be reimbursed 50 percent of the cost of a single project, up to $2,500.

Previously, the grants have been used for playground equipment, water fountains, benches and landscaping. The Parks and Recreation Department has been awarding Challenge grants to non-profit groups for more than 25 years.

The deadline for applications is Monday September 16, 2013.

Applicants will be notified and announced by Wednesday, October 16, 2013.

All project work must be completed by Friday, May 30, 2014.

Applications and grant parameters are available by calling 865.215.2017 or at http://www.cityofknoxville.org/recreation/challengegrant.pdf.
