2023 Sister City Grants Program Applications Now Being Accepted

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – The City of Charlottesville Sister Cities Commission (CSCC) is now accepting applications for its 2023 Sister Cities Grants Program. With a total awards budget of $24,000, the Commission invites Charlottesville nonprofits, arts organizations, schools, businesses, and individuals to apply for project funding up to $4,000.

Grants are available for projects that benefit the Charlottesville community as well as our Sister City communities in Besançon, France; Poggio a Caiano, Italy; Winneba, Ghana; and Huehuetenango, Guatemala (“Friendship City” to Charlottesville, Sister City status pending).

Think widely and broadly - grants will be awarded for a variety of activities that meet the mission of the Charlottesville Sister Cities Commission (CSCC): to promote understanding and foster relationships between citizens and organizations in the Charlottesville area and our Sister Cities through cultural, economic, educational, and humanitarian activities.

Past grants have supported initiatives in the visual arts, music, municipal services, digital communications and connectivity, education, literary fields, sports, photography, & more! Whether you’re 8 or 80, we welcome your application (under age 18 requires parent signature) and all fields of endeavor are encouraged.

The 2023 Grants Application deadline is January 13, 2023. Applications must be received by this date to receive consideration. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be considered. Grant recipients will be notified of the Commission’s award decision within 45 days of the application deadline date.

Applications may be submitted by individuals or groups. Sister Cities Commissioners and sub-committee members may not apply.                    

Funds will be available as reimbursements; expenses and requests for reimbursement must be made by May 31, 2024. Expenditures must be detailed in a year-end report made to the CSCC.
