Outside Agency Funding
Borough Now Accepting Submissions for Outside Agency Funding
As part of the annual Borough of Carlisle budget process, Borough Council considers funding requests from organizations that want to improve Carlisle. The Borough has begun accepting submissions for 2022. All submissions must be received by September 30, 2021. For fiscal year 2022, the Borough is tentatively proposing $10,000 in funds, with a funding limit of $2,500 to one organization.
When applying for Outside Agency Funding, the applicant must demonstrate that the funds will be used for one or more of the following areas:
- Community Beautification: Funds may be used to beautify a particular area of Carlisle Borough. Examples could include: planting along a block, neighborhood cleanups, planting of trees, etc.
- Social Programs: Funds may be used to support programs in the community that improve residents’ quality of life, particularly for children and youth.
- Support of Community Activities: Funds may be used to participate in community events, including the purchase of materials or supplies.
- Education: Funds may be used to support educational opportunities.
Other objectives for consideration in submissions include the estimated number of Borough residents that will benefit from the project/mission and how the project/mission aligns with current Borough services.
Submissions will be evaluated by the Assistant Borough Manager, Chairperson or Vice-Chair of the Community Planning and Smart Growth Committee, and the Chairperson or Vice-Chair of the Budget and Finance Committee.
