Youth Mini-Grant


This policy is established in effort to provide fair and equitable grant funding to charitable and nonprofit organizations in the city of Ypsilanti and to provide procedures to apply for and receive funding of non-profit/charitable groups, events, services, and programs that benefit residents in the City of Ypsilanti.

Organizational Grant Policy

Each organization receiving a grant will provide a benefit to the youth of the City of Ypsilanti.

Grants to cover operational needs are funded directly from the general fund (101). 

It is important to limit the use of the general fund as it is the primary source of revenue for all City operations, including public safety. An amount not to exceed $10,000 in total will be considered available to provide support for grant requests and other similar budget allocations for organizational support.

The following guidelines will ensure that a uniform process is followed in the appropriation of city General Funds for requests that are annually submitted to the city.
