The City of Sisters is seeking to award Community Grants to nonprofit community groups and other entities that meet the grant criteria for the 2023/24 fiscal year. The City will award up to $20,000 in grants this year for Sisters community projects. The average grant award is approximately $1,400, and the City has awarded over $304,000 in grants to 61 local groups over the past 20 years.

Organizations that serve the Sisters community but are not designated non-profits will need to meet at least one of the following criteria:

• Provides assistance for essential utilities, food, medical needs, clothing, or shelter. 

• Provides educational or recreational opportunities for children or seniors.

• Generates/supports economic activity in Sisters.

In evaluating requests from nonprofits and for-profit organizations, the City will consider the following:

• The requesting organization’s history of success.

• The organizational and financial stability of the requesting organization.

• The number and types of community members served by the request.

• The ability to measure and track the effectiveness of the project or service.

• Community grant funds will not be used for travel, budget deficits, or routine operating expenses.

• The City may give special consideration for requests to support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in Sisters.

Interested organizations should submit a Community Grant application by Sunday, July 30, attention Kerry Prosser, city recorder at [email protected].
