Here's an opportunity. The City of Carlsbad has a Community Activity Grants Program. The grants are designed to provide enrichment programs to the community. An enrichment program is any program that enhances the quality of life for residents and/or visitors. The City Council had set aside $1 million from which the interest earned will be allocated for community service activities. The amount available for the 2014-15 fiscal year is $10,000.
These grants are intended to provide alternatives to other city programs such as the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) by providing grants for services that may not be eligible under these other programs. Thus, any organization currently receiving funds from another city program is not eligible for a Community Activity Grant.
In the past, recipients were limited to three years of funding. Three year recipients may now reapply for this grant, as long as they have not received funding for at least two consecutive years.
