City of Tucson Extends Funding Round for Grants

The City of Tucson Office of Economic Initiatives recently issued an Addendum to the Economic & Workforce Development and Special Events Applications. Grant applications are now due no later than May 4 at 4 p.m.

An open call to nonprofit organizations for the next round of funding in its Economic & Workforce Development and Special Events Grants Program was announced on Feb. 28. Due to our current economic climate because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the applications have been amended, and applicant programs and events should have a focus that assists with short- and long-term recovery related to the impacts of the pandemic.

Current applicants should revise and resubmit their applications. Other agencies are welcome to apply, emphasizing how their program outcomes will address the recovery of the Tucson economy.
