Kannapolis wants to help non-profits serve the public

KANNAPOLIS — The city of Kannapolis is seeking applications for funding from nonprofit groups that offer programs that benefit low- and moderate-income residents.

The funding is part of the city’s 2017-18 Community Development Block Grant allocation. The deadline to submit applications is 5 p.m. March 31.

Eligible programs include:

  • Employment services such as job training.
  • Crime prevention and public safety.
  • Child care.
  • Health services.
  • Substance abuse services such as counseling and treatment.
  • Fair housing counseling.
  • Education programs.
  • Energy conservation.
  • Services for senior citizens.
  • Services for the homeless.
  • Welfare services (excluding income payments).
  • Homebuyer down payment assistance.

Applications will be reviewed by the Community Development Commission and city staff members. The total grant allocation is estimated at $50,000.

Multiple grants of as much as $5,000 will be awarded to support existing programs. Larger grants of $15,000 may be awarded for qualifying new programs and/or new agencies. Applicants may apply for both existing and new program grants but will only receive one type of grant if eligible.
