Coronado Community Grant Program
The proposed funding “cap” of $1M for the Coronado Community Grant Program is artificial and arbitrary. The impact of such a “cap” is that many community non-profit organizations will not be able to provide necessary programs and services to meet current demand. The proposed $1M “cap” is at least 20% less than the need, and will therefore have negative ramifications for our community.
We ask City Council NOT to accept the Community Grant Program proposal being set forth for consideration with the arbitrary “cap” of $1M. Rather, we propose that specified grant funding amounts are withdrawn from the policy and determined by City Council annually based upon determined needs and interests of the community.
