Community Grant program. Entities that applied for a grant last year
will automatically have an application mailed to them. If you would

Dear Prospective Applicant:
Attached is a copy of Resolution #2000-15 stating the policy of the City
of Moscow for granting financial support to organizations providing
community services on behalf of the City.
If you are interested in applying for a grant this year, please complete
the required enclosed application form and return all materials to me.
This form is designed to provide only summary information to facilitate
a rapid overview by the City Council of each request; however, you
should provide the supporting documents identified on the application
form as attachments. In addition, any brochures and other information
you feel would be beneficial to the Council in their evaluation process
should be included.

this application to receive consideration for funding during the City's
fiscal 2006-2007 budget. The City Council will meet in a workshop

and to listen to organization presentations. Following these
presentations, the Council will allocate the available funds ($19,000.00
total) to successful applicants. At the October 23rd meeting, each
applicant will have approximately five minutes to present their
application. Your attendance at that meeting is strongly encouraged.
Please note as indicated on #3 of the Resolution, that funded programs
will be required to enter into an agreement for the approved project or
program. Approved funds will be disbursed mid-November.

RESOLUTION NO. 2000-15
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF MOSCOW, A MUNICIPAL CORPORATION OF THE STATE
OF IDAHO, AMENDING RESOLUTION 94-11 ADOPTED BY THE MAYOR AND CITY
COUNCIL JUNE 6, 1994 STATING THE POLICY OF THE CITY FOR PROVIDING
FINANCIAL SUPPORT THROUGH BUDGET APPROPRIATIONS TO OUTSIDE ORGANIZATIONS
AND AGENCIES FOR CONTRACTED PROGRAMS AND SERVICES TO THE COMMUNITY;
PROVIDING THIS RESOLUTION BE EFFECTIVE UPON ITS PASSAGE AND APPROVAL.
WHEREAS, on June 6, 1994, the Mayor and City Council approved Resolution
94-11 stating the policy of the City for providing financial support to
outside organizations and agencies for contracted programs and services
to the community and adopting an effective date; and
WHEREAS, the City of Moscow recognizes that certain services can be more
effectively provided by contracting with outside organizations and
WHEREAS, activities and special events that will benefit the residents
of the community should be considered for funding.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Mayor and City Council of the City
of Moscow as follows:
1. Entities requesting funding consideration must meet at least one
of the following three criteria:
a. An activity which requires seed money for a single event and
occurs within one budget year;
b. An activity which has the potential of becoming self-sufficient.
This type of activity could be one just starting which has an obvious
funding need and which has a constituency that appears to have the
potential of financially supporting the activity within a short period
of time. An example is a three (3) year grant which declines annually
such that in the fourth year no further funding would be provided;
c. An activity which provides a specific, on-going service to the
City that would be granted and contracted with the idea that this
contract would continue for an extended period of time.
2. An outside organization or agency shall submit their request for
funding consideration on a form prepared by the City. Such request must
be submitted to the City Clerk prior to October 1st of each year.
Council will hear individual presentations in order to evaluate each
proposal. Council will make final funding decisions by November 30th of
3. Those entities which have secured a grant through this process
will complete and sign a statement indicating that, as a condition of
accepting these funds, they will comply with all City policies regarding
nondiscrimination and in addition, will submit an accounting of how
funds were distributed. This accounting will be submitted to the City
Clerk prior to May 1st of each calendar year. Failure to do so may
eliminate the entity from future grant consideration.
Passed by the City Council and approved by the Mayor this 24th day of
Marshall H. Comstock, Mayor
Christine Bainbridge, City Clerk
