 Dear Agency:

The City of Shreveport is now accepting applications for grants from the City’s Civic Appropriations Fund. The 2018 Civic Appropriations Grant Applications and forms are on the city’s website at the following links: Civic Appropriations Guidelines and Application.

There you will find four different categories available to you. Please choose the one that best matches the goals of your program based on the criteria given. Categories are:

  • Arts & Culture
  • City Wide Community Enhancement – programs in this category must be available city-wide
  • Human Services
  • Economic Development

APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE MAILED OR BROUGHT TO THE OFFICE OF THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER , 505 TRAVIS STREET, SUITE #200 SHREVEPORT, LA. 71101, BY 5:00 PM MONDAY, JULY 31, 2017. SUBMITTALS RECEIVED AFTER THAT TIME WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. THIS DEADLINE IS FIRM.

Having received a Civic Appropriations grant in the past does not guarantee a grant in successive years. The current economic situation underlines the tough decisions we must make. Grants will be prioritized based on the goals and mission of the City of Shreveport.

Thank you for what you do for the citizens of Shreveport. Should you have questions about the grant application process, please call the City Council at 318-673-5262.
