Financial Advisory Board Grant Application 2023

  1. City of Glenwood Springs, Colorado
  2. Application Information and Instructions

  3. Introduction

    Dear Applicant,

    This document contains the 2023 Grant Application.

    Each year, the City of Glenwood Springs allocates a portion of sales tax revenues from its Acquisition and Improvement (A&I) and Tourism Funds for human services, special events, tourism promotion and other public purposes as City Council deems appropriate.

    Please be aware that this year the City is requiring all applications to be submitted in full, on-time, and in one pdf file only. We have made exceptions in the past, but Council has directed the finance staff to not present applications to the reviewing body that do not meet the 2023 requirements. Applications must be completed and submitted online.

    An applicant may submit only one application each grant cycle. The grant process is competitive. Receipt of funds in a prior year is not a guarantee of funding or the same amount of funds, in the current year.

    Review your application completely before submitting it, and make sure you have followed all instructions.

    The City of Glenwood Springs complies with all applicable state and federal laws and does not discriminate in any manner.
