It has been the practice of the City of Coffeyville to allocate funds to contribute to community-based programs and activities conducted by community-based organizations which provide valuable services to the community of Coffeyville. In order to ensure that a uniform process is followed for distributing funds, the City of Coffeyville has implemented an application process.
Therefore, the City Commission will consider all requests for funding from community-based organizations during the 2021 budget process this year. Due to limited resources, not all requests can be funded. Therefore, it is the City Commission’s intention to evaluate each proposal, and based upon available funds and the merits of each proposal, provide money or other forms of assistance to those organizations which most effectively serve the needs and improve the well-being of Coffeyville residents.
Applications for funding must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office on or before July 13, of this year for consideration in the 2021 budget process unless otherwise announced by the City Commission.
Each community-based organization must be prepared to give a five-minute presentation during a prearranged funding request meeting during the 2021 budget process. The contact person listed on the application will be notified of the meeting date and time and must be prepared to present at that time, an alternate representative is acceptable.
Applications and guidelines are available at the City Clerk’s Office, 102 W. 7th Street, Coffeyville, Kansas. Applications are due on or before July 13, 2020. You can contact the City Clerk’s Office during business hours, if you have any questions.
