Community Enrichment Grant
Community Enrichment Grant Committee
Launched in 2021, the community grant program enhances the quality of life for residents, business owners, and visitors to the Town of Zionsville. The Zionsville Community Enrichment Committee serves as the instrument for evaluating and awarding financial assistance to local community-serving organizations. This committee consists of five community members: three appointed by the Mayor and two appointed by the Town Council majority. Members serve for a one-year term and are eligible for term renewal. This five-member advisory committee ensures that grant awards are consistent with the Town’s Code of Ordinances and are dispersed in a manner that is transparent and fair. The committee is supported by the Mayor’s Executive Assistant and meets at least semi-annually.
Eligible non-profit organizations are located in Boone County and serve Zionsville residents and businesses. Funding must be used for charitable purposes as defined by section 170 (b)(1)(A). Awards are made without discrimination as to age, color, race, religion, sex, disability, veteran status or national origin, and only to eligible recipients that do not unlawfully discriminate on these same criteria.
Awards are made on a semi-annual basis. In 2022, awards will be made on April 30 and September 30. To be considered for the next funding cycle, applications are due at least 30 days before the close of the term. Applications submitted within 30 days of award distribution will be considered for the next distribution.
