Grants

The City of Frisco makes funds available for social services that benefit residents of the City of Frisco through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the Social Service Grant. These funds are awarded by the Social Service and Housing Board and City Council through an annual application process. The City of Frisco Social Services and Housing Board will fund an organization's program based upon the percentage of Frisco clients that are served by the program. The majority of these funds will be granted to agencies that provide for services to low and moderate income residents.

To be eligible for funding, organizations must be one of the following:

  • A public or private non-profit, tax-exempt organization, in good standing with the State of Texas, and must have an active Board of Directors in compliance with IRS Section 501(c)(3); or

Applicants must attend a mandatory training and submit a completed grant application by the deadline.
