Eligible organizations may apply for the city to fund specific programming in three key priority areas: children, youth and education; housing, human services and health; and the arts and culture. This application continues to be the form for all quasi-governmental organizations to apply for city funding.

This is a one-year funding opportunity for non-profits and public sector organizations working on a grassroots level to promote equity in the City of Richmond.

A virtual informational workshop will be held on December 6 at 3 p.m. to assist applicants with completing their materials. The virtual meeting link and call-in details are available here:
