[ARCHIVED] Hemet Opens Special Event Funding Application Period

Hemet Opens Special Event Funding Application Period

HEMET, CA – The City of Hemet announced today that the 2019-2020 application period for community event funding will open on March 11, 2019. Community groups and non-profit organizations interested in partnering with the City to deliver events are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted from March 11, 2019 to April 4, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. An Ad-Hoc Committee will review applications and make a final recommendation to the City Council for consideration for approval before June 30, 2019 as a part of the fiscal year 2019/2020 City budget process.

In 2012, the City Council established a Special Event Funding Program to support community and special events. The program is managed by the City Manager’s Department. For fiscal year 2019-2020, events proposed to be held in City parks: Weston, Gibbel or Mary Henley, will receive priority for possible funding by the City Council.

The 2019-2020 Program Guidelines and Application materials for both small events (funding from $100 to $999) and large events (funding for $1000 or more) are available at or by contacting Sarah McComas in the City Manager’s Office at (951) 765-2301.

In 2019, the City awarded over $50,000 in cash and in-kind services to the following local organizations: Ramona Bowl Association, Valley Queens Scholarship Foundation, T.H.E. Center, Inc., Habitat for Humanity, Soboba Foundation, Ramona Humane Society, Hemet Valley Art Association, NAMI Mt. San Jacinto, Hemet Sunset Rotary, Hemet Historical Theater and West Valley High School.

    PLEASE NOTE: This announcement or submission of an application is in no way a commitment of funding
    or participation by the City. Due to potential City budget constraints in Fiscal Year 2019-2020, there is a
    possibility the City Council will not award any grants.
