The City of Newport News recognizes that not-for-profit organizations fill an important role in improving the quality of life for our community. To encourage not-for-profit organizations to provide services to residents of Newport News, we have established a system to award monetary grants to qualified not-for-profit organizations. These grants are intended to:
- Provide funding to not-for-profit agencies serving the city of Newport News whose services are easily accessible to Newport News residents and whose service costs can be documented.
- Provide incentive funding to develop new services or capital improvements to meet specific needs of Newport News residents and to complement services provided by city departments.
Any local, non-profit, 501c(3) organizations may apply for funding, if they meet the legal requirements of the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Internal Revenue Service and the City of Newport News. The organization must provide significant, measurable direct services related to health, safety and education of the citizens of Newport News, and cannot receive grants from other City resources for the same program for which funding is requested.
More details are available on the Budget Department's website. Application deadline is January 10, 2021.
