The City receives requests for funding from local non-profits each year as part of its budget preparation process. Once the City Council has approved the budget (which happens after the Council receives a recommendation from the Budget Committee), a Committee of City Councilors reviews the applications for funding and makes a recommendation to the full City Council as to which agencies should receive funds.
“I am pleased the City Council continues to set aside money in the City budget for local non-profit agencies” said Don Williams, Mayor, City of Lincoln City. “Our recipients perform vital work in support of our community. The Council appreciates the support of the citizens of Lincoln City in making these grants available.”
Members of the public and the media are welcome to attend the presentation ceremony.
