Not-for-Profit Grant Program

The city is no longer accepting applications for the 2015 CDBG or 2015 Riverboat Grant programs. Information for the 2016 non-profit grant programs will be made available in fall 2015. 


The Riverboat Grant was established to assist and support the operating costs of local social service agencies offering programs and projects that support the strategic goals of the City Council and benefit the Elgin community. The grant program is open to all 501(c)3 Not for Profit organizations that provide services to residents of Elgin.
