Competitive Grant Applications Due Dec. 4 

Time is ticking down for interested groups to submit applications for 2024 Community Project Sponsorship  Grants.

Inyo County is making available $40,000 for competitive grants for local events, projects, and other initiatives  spearheaded by local non-profit organizations in 2024. Applications are due, either on paper or digitally,  December 4, 2023. Grant awards are expected to be made in mid- to late January.

The Competitive Grants can be used to fund a variety of projects, programs, or events. In general, the CPSP  program is focused on helping local organizations promote activities and programs that bring visitors to the  area, and also supports events and programs that enhance the cultural and recreational quality of life of the  county’s residents. For example, last year CPSP grants were used to help sponsor Playhouse 395, “Movies at  the Museum” in Lone Pine, Inyo County Search and Rescue’s Range of Light Trail Races, an outdoor youth  program, the First Friday Markets in Bishop, Owens Lake Bird Festival, and other events from Tecopa to  Bishop.

The Program Guidelines, Grant Application, Grant Review Criteria, Tax Status Certification Forms, and Final  Report Template are also available to review or download at: 

To be considered, the completed and signed Grant Application (submitted on paper or digitally), must be  received by the Office of the County Administrator by 5 p.m. on Monday, December 4, 2023. No postmarks will  be accepted. Grant applications must be complete at time of submission with all of the required documentation  included. 

Grant applications being mailed should be sent to: Office of the County Administrator, Attn: Community Project  Sponsorship Program, P.O. Drawer N, Independence, CA 93526. If hand delivering, deliver to: Office of the  County Administrator, 224 N. Edwards Street, Independence, CA, (760) 878-0292. Digital grant applications,  which still need original signatures, may be sent to [email protected].

Grant applications will be reviewed for completeness and eligibility and then forwarded to an independent Review Panel for evaluation, ranking, and suggested funding levels. The County Administrative Officer is  expected to consider the Review Panel’s funding recommendations and make a final decision on the specific  grant awards by mid- to late January 2024. The maximum amount that can be requested per application is  $10,000.

Organizations or groups with questions about the grant guidelines, the application process, or the program in general can call (760) 878-0292 for more information.
