Outside Funding Request Process
Each year, the City of Ames provides funding for programs and activities that meet certain criteria and that fulfill a public purpose. Interested organizations should fill out the Outside Funding Request Process application. Grant applications are due to the City Manager's Office no later than November 15 of each year. You may submit completed forms electronically to BPhillips@cityofames.org.
The applications are reviewed by a committee, which makes recommendations for the City Council's approval in February during the City's annual budget preparation process. Requests for funding may be considered at other times of the year in the event that an unforeseen need or opportunity arises that could not be fulfilled during the normal application timeline.
