In February 2012, the Galt City Council approved a Community Benefit Funding Policy for resident 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The city is now preparing for this grant funding opportunity, which is intended to provide funding to local nonprofit organizations for specified community benefit programs and/or projects that will:

  • Address an un-met/under-met and ongoing community need.
  • Demonstrate long-term impact and quality outcome.
  • Benefit a large cross section of community residents and/or businesses.
  • Leverage additional funding to support the program.

Final grant decisions are made solely by the Galt City Council and will be made on a year-to-year basis. There is $10,000 budgeted for fiscal year 2013-14, which must be expended within the grant year (July 1 through June 30). If these funds are not expended within the grant year, they will revert back to the city.

To read the policy or download an application, visit the city's website at www.ci.galt.ca.us. All applications are due to the City Clerk's office no later than noon on April 1.

For more information, call City Clerk Elizabeth Aguire at 209-366-7130 or email clerk@ci.galt.ca.us.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
