It is anticipated that funding for the Public Services Grants program will be in a similar amount to that allocated in FY 2022/23. In FY 2022/23 approximately $140,000 will be allocated to Public Services Grants. The City of Monterey may determine minimums and/or maximums for funding requests for more efficient allocation of funds. Until further notice, applicant agencies should consider minimum grant thresholds of $4,000 and maximum thresholds of $20,000 per program or project. Due to funding constraints and emerging needs of the community, the City of Monterey reserves the right to modify proposed budgets and/or scopes of work to better target the City's identified priorities. Advance notification and consultation concerning such modifications will be provided to the applicant if the application is approved.
