City of Tallahassee/CRA FY17 Promotional/Special E...
Posted: Jun 06, 2016
The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) has authorized $85,000 to help fund promotional and or special events within the Greater Frenchtown/Southside Community Redevelopment Area ($50,000) and the Downtown District Community Redevelopment Area ($35,000). The purpose of the program is to provide support to special events that promote the goals and objectives of the Greater Frenchtown/Southside Community Redevelopment Plan or the Downtown District Community Redevelopment Plan.
The grant funds will be available to qualified not-for-profit organizations that will host promotional/special events during Fiscal Year 2017, which starts on October 1, 2016 and ends on September 30, 2017, within either of the two redevelopment areas. A special event or promotional activity eligible for funding is defined as a new or existing organized concert, exhibition, festival, carnival, athletic event, craft show, competition, parade, celebration, market or any event similar in nature which is open to the public. Special events do not include social parties, conferences, open houses, grand openings, ribbon cutting ceremonies or events that are not open to the public. Grant funds shall only be provided for events occurring after the applicant has entered into a grant agreement with the CRA. The CRA Executive Director reserves the right to make an award for less than the amount requested in the application.
The CRA will again partner with the Tallahassee Downtown Improvement Authority for administering the events occurring in the Downtown District. CRA staff will administer the events occurring in the Greater Frenchtown/Southside District. Applications will be reviewed and scored based on a competitive process with the highest scored applications being funded.
