AURORA — Grant applications are available to local non-profit organizations that are interested in applying for a 2021 Quality of Life Grant from the City of Aurora.
Quality of Life Grants are annual competitive grants provided to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations that serve the residents of Aurora. The areas of service included in the Quality of Life Grant program are child care/youth, education, job training, homelessness, elderly/disabled, veterans, and advancing the goals relating to art in the Downtown Master Plan.
“City government alone cannot make lasting change in the community,” said Mayor Richard C. Irvin. “Our non-profit organizations are on the front lines and know firsthand what our residents need. Quality of Life Grants can assist with their respective missions while bettering Aurora as a whole.”
Previous grant recipients include food pantries, museums, youth services providers and other local agencies serving the Aurora community. In 2020, the City awarded Quality of Life grants to more than 25 community agencies.
Applications are available online and can be downloaded here . Deadline for submission is Nov. 5. Funding will be available in calendar year 2021.
Any technical questions regarding the application can be sent to Chris Ragona (CRagona@aurora-il.org), and questions regarding the program in general can be sent to John Russell (Jrussell@aurora-il.org).
