Shelby County Commission Community Enhancement Grant Program

NOTICE: THE SHELBY COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS WILL BE ACCEPTING GRANT APPLICATIONS STARTING JULY 1, 2019 via THE NEW GRANT WEBSITE FLUXX! ALL APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED BEFORE JULY 1, 2019 OR SUBMITTED WITHOUT THE COMPLETION OF THE END OF YEAR REPORT FOR MONIES RECEIVED FROM OUR OFFICE IN PRIOR FISCAL YEARS ARE VOID DUE TO THE NEW REQUIREMENTS BY STATE LAW. 

The Community Enhancement Grant Program was established via Resolution by the Shelby County Board of Commissioners during the FY 2016 Budget on July 6, 2015. Each member of the Shelby County Board of Commissioners have funds available to allocate within their individual districts for non-profit organizations (i.e. 501(c)3 & 501(c)4), as well as some governmental/quasi-governmental agencies. The revised guidelines for the Shelby County Board of Commissioners FY 2018 Community Enhancement Program are up for approval by the body by June 24, 2019. These revised guidelines will include new requirements related to the online grant application as well as the submission of required financial documentation. 

In order to move forward with potential grant approvals, applicants should start by contacting the Shelby County Commissioner of their organization's home office for consideration for grant sponsorship; however, potential grantees do have the liberty to reach out to any of the Commissioners for consideration of grant sponsorship.  

Please view and submit the Grant Application.  Grant Applications will ONLY be accepted electronically and phone photos of documents WILL NOT be accepted . Any application that is incomplete or missing documentation will result in delayed processing. Please read through the application thoroughly due to changes made since the previous fiscal years. It is important to allow 30-45 days for the processing of any approved grants.
