Quality of life project grant applications available


The Seymour Redevelopment Commission will accept grant applications for quality of life projects from June 1 to 30.

These grants provide partial funding for projects that benefit Seymour’s designated tax increment financing districts and TIF allocation areas and improve the quality of life for Seymour residents.

The grant application process is open to nonprofit and government organizations whose projects fall within this scope.

Examples of previous successful applications include matching grants for the new HVAC system at the Seymour Museum Center and Seymour’s Tree City USA program.

Grant funds cannot be used to purchase consumable goods or retail items that are distributed to the public.

New projects and/or infrastructure may be given priority. Materials purchased or costs incurred prior to the awarding of a grant will not be considered for retroactive funding.

Per Indiana Code, projects must benefit public health, safety, morals and welfare; increase economic well-being of the city and state; serve to protect and increase property values; public uses; and purposes for which public money may be spent.

A second application period will run from Dec. 1 to 31.

Applications are available at Seymour City Hall, 301-309 N. Chestnut St., or online at seymourin.org. An application also may be requested by emailing Michelle Gossett at [email protected].
