Township Issues Call for Funding Applications

New Trier Township is currently accepting funding applications for the Township’s 2015-2016 fiscal year, which begins March 1, 2015. To be eligible for funding, an agency must be a 501 (c) 3 organization, provide direct services to Township residents and have a firm sense of mission, a volunteer board and an established evaluation process. To apply for funding, an Application for Funding and Budget Worksheet should be filled out and submitted to the Township by Monday, September 8, 2014 at noon.
After proposals have been submitted, committees made up of resident volunteers hold a series of public hearings in the months of October and November. These Advisory Committees will make their final allocation recommendations to the New Trier Township Board in December.
