Community Grant Program

Coronado Community Grant Program

The purpose of the City's Community Grant Program is to strengthen our sense of community by enhancing Economic Development, Social Services, Arts and Culture, and Community Pride/Sense of Place through partnerships with local nonprofits to administer events, services, activities, and purchases more efficiently and economically than otherwise possible through the municipal corporation.

The Community Grant program is guided by Council Policy 28 - Community Grants (PDF).

If you qualify for the program you will receive a link/password directly to the email you provide in the screening to the program application. You may work on the application and save your progress. You may complete the application in a single session or over multiple sessions.
