Governmental Agencies

GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES

Cities and towns as well as county governments often seek grant funding to support the development of specific projects. Cities, for instance, may seek grants to support park and recreation initiatives, delivery of social services, acquisition of police and/or fire equipment, community housing development, construction of new facilities, water quality management, waste-water treatment, highway construction, and many other needs. County governments have similar needs. In contrast, state governmental agencies may seek grant funding on behalf of collaborating partners in the state such as nonprofit agencies, community development corporations, and/or municipal governments.
