COT Community Events Grant Applications DUE
The purpose of the Community Event & Activities Grant Program is to assist organizations that are committed to promoting Turlock, through a variety of events and activities that highlight our community, enhance the quality of life for residents and invite guests to visit Turlock, all of which have a positive impact on our local economy. The Parks, Arts and Recreation Commission (PARC) will review and evaluate all applications and make a recommendation regarding grant funding for each event. In general, events/activities should be geared towards bringing visitors to Turlock, increasing the length of our visitors’ stays and having a positive impact on the local business community during their visit. Events/activities may also focus on inviting our own residents to participate, connecting them with local businesses. Upon completion of the evaluation process, PARC will forward its recommendations to Council for final consideration and approval.

Program Funding
Funding for this program is derived from the Transient Occupancy Tax. Funds are intended to support events and activities which highlight the community and invite individuals to stay in Turlock, stimulating the local business and tourism economy. Organizations may only apply for events/activities scheduled during this funding cycle.
