FY24 Local Guidelines

education, diversity, and excellence.
Local grant funds should add to existing programs and not be used to replace existing
The LAC encourages applicants to seek funding from a variety
of sources rather than depending solely on council funding for projects.
Application forms are available online.
If you have any questions about filling out the application, contact an LAC member for help.
Applicants will be logged in order of receipt by the LAC, and applications will be checked to make sure they
are complete. When possible, applicants will be notified of deficiencies.
