Kansas City, Mo – Kansas City nonprofits hosting local events that showcase local neighborhoods may be eligible for a funding boost from the city.
The Neighborhood Tourism Development Fund began accepting applications this week. The program promotes the Kansas City neighborhood by supporting non-profit neighborhood groups that sponsor festivals, concerts, sports tournaments or other activities.
Nonprofits that recently received funding including the American Jazz Museum, JuneteenthKC, Don Bosco Center, Liberty Memorial Association, Kansas City Community Gardens and dozens more.
But the city’s program encouraged more groups to apply in the latest round. To be eligible, nonprofits must meet the following requirements:
- Show encouragement for broad citizen input and participation
- Be a non-profit environmental organization incorporated in Missouri and located within city limits.
- Be in good condition with the country and the city
- Maintain physical address with city limits
- Maintain a registered agent address in Missouri
The project requested by the group must be implemented between February 1, 2023, and April 30, 2023.
Eligible projects — including festivals, rodeos, home tours, exhibits, parades and more — must also be open to Kansas City residents and attract visitors from outside the city limits as well.
Interested groups must apply online. The process has recently been improved, so nonprofits can now apply through a new user-friendly portal.
The deadline to apply is October 14.
