How it works
The Joliet Township Board will review requests for funding from non-profit community organizations on a quarterly basis. It may also consider public safety or community support grants to government taxing bodies, as permissible by law. Requests will be reviewed quarterly, at regular board meetings, specifically on:
- May 9, 2023
- August 8, 2023
- November 28, 2023
- February 13, 2024
If the consideration is re-scheduled for a special meeting other than the regular board meeting, applicants will be notified of the
new meeting date.
The Township board reserves the right to limit the amount of grant money available to any individual organization. Any grants to governmental taxing bodies or their subsidiaries, such as libraries, schools, or public safety organizations, must serve the residents of the township, and will only be granted through a direct purchase of the items by the Township. If your organization is such an entity, please complete the second page, “Indemnification“ portion of the application.
It is your duty to determine the timing appropriate to your grant request.
Requests must be received by the Township no later than 1 week prior to the grant consideration meeting (see meeting dates above). If you fail to submit a request in a timely fashion, you will forfeit the opportunity to receive timely funding.
Completed grant applications can be dropped off at or mailed to the Township Office, or emailed to: email@example.com. The online application submission is below.
Due to the limited availability of funds, an organization which meets eligibility requirements shall not receive more than two (2) grants per fiscal year.
Notwithstanding past experience, there is no guarantee that future requests will be approved. Former recipients may be asked for an accounting of past grants. An incomplete application will be considered unqualified for funding. Be sure to specify the payee on the form, both name and address, and please understand that these checks are issued to organizations, not individuals. If you need additional space, use a separate page and you are encouraged to attach supplementary information. Additional information may be requested upon review of your application, but please provide detailed responses to the questions in the application. You are strongly encouraged to have a representative present at the meeting to answer any questions.
