Applications for Municipal Powers Outsource Grants Now Being Accepted

The City Council of the City of Twin Falls is now accepting applications for the FY2017 Municipal Powers Outsource Grants (MPOG) from community organizations. The grants are designed to provide financial support for organizations that provide programs and/or services that support the mission and vision of the City, and that benefit the residents of Twin Falls. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must operate as a local non-profit, charitable, educational, civic, scientific, social welfare, religious, health service organization, or a governmental or quasi-governmental unit.

Successful MPOG applicants will:
• Support the City of Twin Falls mission, vision, and 2030 Strategic Plan focus areas.
• Demonstrate collaboration, coordination, and partnership with other organizations or services to achieve goals, and not duplicate services already provided in the community.
• Address needs within the city that would otherwise be a responsibility of city government to provide or enhance existing city services.
• Contain clearly outlined strategies to accomplish goals.
• Demonstrate a financial need and fiscal responsibility.
