City Council Community Projects, Programs and Services (CPPS) funding is awarded to non-profit organizations and public agencies for one-time community, social, environmental, cultural and recreational needs that serve a lawful public purpose. The City Council Office CPPS Funding Program is governed by Council Policy 100-06. Funds awarded to organizations and agencies are paid on a reimbursement basis only and are at the discretion of Council Offices.
Please note, the CPPS funding allocation process has changed as of July 1, 2018. The application process includes two steps: 1) Request for Qualifications (RFQ), and 2) Request for Proposals (RFP). Council Administration will hold office hours and workshops related to process requirements. Please see the CPPS/ACCF Funding Program Schedule below for important dates and deadlines.
