Application is open to any not-for-profit organization, 501(c)3 status, providing eligible programs or services to low and moderate income Davenport residents. Staff will present the federal regulations and the fiscal, programmatic, and eligibility requirements. The applications and instruction packet will only be available at the workshop.
