Community Grant Program

Events

The Iowa City Area Community Grant Program was established to support events that are open to the general public. Funds are available to further develop events that improve the quality of life for residents of the Iowa City area and have the potential to attract visitors to the area or to enhance a visitor’s experience. Potential grant projects can be cultural, educational, literary, recreational or artistic. Each recipient may be awarded up to $5,000 for an approved event or project, following a July 1 – June 30 funding cycle with applications due in April of each year.

Applications are now closed for the FY23 Community Grant Program. Applications will open for the FY24 program in Spring 2023.
