Shively Rapid Cycle Grants
Shively Rapid Cycle grants are our most nimble way to fund initiatives and opportunities that might otherwise not have access to resources because they are too new, too small, or too urgent. Shively Rapid Cycle grants are small grants up to $1,000 to support emerging and/or unforeseen opportunities. This fund is intended for short-term community responses to unanticipated events and situations that require urgent or timely action. Funds are not intended for general operating support, budget shortfalls, planned or long-term programming.
Award decisions are made within two weeks of proposal submission and grant funds are mailed within two weeks of grant decision. Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis until the annual allocation is expended.
Shively Grants are not considered in July and August; they will next be reviewed in September.
