Grants to the City

It is the policy of the City of Monterey to increase the financial assets of the City by seeking out and pursuing funding opportunities for programs and projects that will benefit the City and its residents.

The Finance Department oversees resource development, grant writing, and the research of available grants. With a tight municipal budget and limited funds, as well as the desire to maximize return and prioritize the use of City funds, the utilization of grants is a critical element of the City’s ability to provide programs and services that enhance our community’s quality of life.

Below is the status of current grant awards benefiting our City. As you review the many city projects underway, you can see how grant funding has enabled important projects to become reality, and increased the City’s ability to fund a wider variety of projects.
