Pre-Grant Meeting to Discuss Changes to Municipal Powers Outsource Grants (MPOG)

Twin Falls Municipal Band

The Twin Falls City Council administers Municipal Powers Outsource Grants (MPOG) in an effort to assist community organizations that provide programs and/or services that support the mission and strategic vision of the City and 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. Eligible applicants must provide a service expressly granted as a municipal power by Idaho Code, Title 50, Chapter 3 – Municipal Powers.

To ensure MPOG funds are being used to support the 2030 City of Twin Falls Strategic Plan, the City Council made several changes to the grant process for FY2019. 

These changes, along with eligibility requirements and important dates, will be discussed at a mandatory pre-grant meeting at 10 a.m. Monday, April 22. The meeting will take place in Room 116 of City Hall, 203 Main Avenue East, Twin Falls, Idaho. A representative from any organization interested in applying for MPOG funds must be present at this meeting. 

If you have any questions regarding the pre-grant meeting, please contact Mandi Thompson at mthompson@tfid.org or (208) 735-7237
