Assembly Grants

Assembly grants are awarded based on community need and the Assembly’s goals and priorities for the fiscal year. These grants are intended to provide community support for social services, economic development, arts and culture, tourism management and promotion, recreation, energy efficiency and sustainability. The Assembly prioritizes funding awards that focus on areas of extreme need in the community, including childcare and affordable housing.

Assembly grants are appropriated as part of the annual budget process in June of every year. Learn more about CBJ’s budget process here.
