Applications can be submitted for the Together CK: Events Grant Program, which in past years was called the Community Partnership Fund: Festival & Events.

Groups are invited to apply for funding of up to 50% of an event’s cost to a maximum of $5,000. Significant events (those with attendance in excess of 10,000) can quality for up to 50% of expenses for the first $10,000 of the budget and 25% percentage of the balance of the budget, to a maximum of $25,000. 

The deadline for applications for this round of funding is Friday, January 3 at 4:30 p.m. Grant guidelines are available online at under the Residents heading. (Choose the “Community Funding” link, then click on “Together CK Municipal Grant Program”.)

This year marks the second year that applications are to be submitted on-line. All applications will be reviewed by a committee composed of citizens and representatives from various municipal departments.
