City taking applications for community grant

The city of Garden City is accepting applications for its Community Grant Program, which provides funds to persons or organizations for projects or programs that benefit the entire community or significantly benefit a targeted segment of the population.

The community grant is intended for projects or programs not customarily funded through the annual city budget but still meet the city's goals and objectives. Any person, civic group, nonprofit agency or private entity will be considered for funding, except for those that would qualify for Alcohol Fund Advisory Committee funds, Arts Grant funds, and those with the ability to levy funds.

City accepting AFAC fund applications

The city of Garden City is now accepting applications for its Alcohol Fund Advisory Committee's (AFAC) use of Alcohol Tax Funds Program.

The state of Kansas gives cities and counties money generated from a special tax on liquor sales that can be used for general improvement purposes, parks and recreation and alcohol and drug treatment or prevention.

Garden City and Finney County created the advisory committee to manage the portion of funds devoted to alcohol and drug treatment or prevention by asking for applications and making recommendations for using the money.

Applicants are expected to provide a strategic description of how they would use funds and to provide documentation through the year.

Particular consideration is given to applications that propose making a difference in treatment, problem identification and referral, alternatives and activities, community based change efforts, environmental approaches, prevention education and information dissemination.

Applications are available on the city's website, www.garden-city.org, until 4 p.m. Jan. 4, 2013. Applications also may be mailed or hand-delivered to Ashley Freburg, communications specialist, 301 N. Eighth St., Garden City, KS 67846. Those with additional questions should contact Freburg at 276-1160.
