The City of Burlington's Co-Sponsorship Grant Program supports groups who promote new or existing activities that enhance the well-being of the Burlington community and are open to the general public free of charge.
The grant program is open to event organizers from public and private groups as well as non-profit organizations.
A grant recipient can expect to have the rental fee waived for reservations at a City facility as well as the fee for submission of the organizer's Special Event Permit Application. Other benefits include access to some of the City's equipment such as tables, chairs, barricades, and cones. Co-Sponsorship Grant recipients are also eligible to be included in the City's advertising & marketing campaigns.
The Application Period for Co-Sponsorship Grants opens annually, typically in the fall, and considers special event activities occurring the following calendar year (i.e. the 2018 application period supports events taking place in 2019).
Event Organizers are encouraged to contact Parks and Recreation to find out more about the program or if interested in being contacted when the next Application Period opens. (360) 755-9649 or Email us.
