Goodyear accepting funding applications from nonprofits through June 15

Pre-application webinar Tuesday, May 26

Nonprofits interested in receiving funding from the city of Goodyear have until Monday, June 15 to apply.

The city has scheduled an optional pre-application webinar at 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 26 for those wishing to review the application. Registration is required to join the meeting.

To be eligible for funds, an organization should benefit Goodyear residents, offer a service not duplicated by the city or another service provider and be able to track the number of residents it serves, according to city notice.

Applications may be submitted online by 5 p.m. June 15. They must include responses to a questionnaire, current board of directors, community funding, copy of the organization's 501(c)(3) determination letter from the IRS and W-9.

For a full list of requirements and a worksheet, visit https://www.goodyearaz.gov/residents/neighborhood-services/grants-given-by-city/application-fy20-21-community-funding.

City staff will review applications for completeness and eligibility. A subcommittee of three Goodyear City Council members review submissions and make funding recommendations to the full council for approval in a regular meeting, and checks will be awarded in July.

Funding priorities include:

  • Expanding services available in the Goodyear Community that are designed to meet the needs of minority populations, people in (or at risk of being in) crisis, or the homeless
  • Fostering social and cultural cohesion in Goodyear
  • Innovative solutions to bring more mental health care services into Goodyear, particularly for youth
  • Innovative transportation solutions for Goodyear residents, particularly those that help residents meet their health care needs
  • Regional solutions that result in increased access and a greater variety of services available to Goodyear residents and the workforce
