Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the Everett Citizens Foundation Grant Funding Application for year four, round one is now available. The request limit for this round of funding is set at $10,000. All applications are due Friday, September 23.
Through the City of Everett’s Host Community Agreement with Wynn Resorts, which was approved by voters in 2013, the Everett Citizens Foundation was established. The Foundation, which consists of members appointed by Mayor DeMaria, the Everett City Council, State Senator Sal DiDomenico and State Representative Joe McGonagle, is charged with supporting and promoting local groups, associations and programs with important initiatives that provide a direct benefit to Everett residents.
“This has been and continues to be a great opportunity for organizations to receive additional funding,” said Mayor DeMaria. “The Everett Citizens Foundation seeks to assist organizations that have a positive impact on the residents of Everett. I encourage all organizations in the community to apply.”
Any nonprofit organization in the community can apply. Grant applications can be found online at www.CityofEverett.com – click “Business & Development” and then “Everett Citizens Foundation.” For questions or concerns regarding the application or eligibility, please email ECFoundation@ci.everett.ma.us.
