Grant Description

Grants of up to $15,000 to Iowa qualifying nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for organizational support. Requests will be accepted from early-stage nonprofits that provide public services to low-to-moderate-income individuals. Eligible applicants serve residents of Iowa City.

Emerging Aid to Agencies (A2A) provides flexible operational funding for nonprofits providing public services. Up to five percent of Aid to Agencies funding may be made available for “emerging” agencies, i.e. agencies that are not designated as Legacy Agencies in City Steps 2025, the City's consolidated plan.

The City Steps Plan guides funding within the community that benefits low-moderate income persons by creating jobs, improving housing, and providing services. See http://www.icgov.org/actionplan for more information.
