Apply for 2022 Ames Community Grant by Oct. 15

The application period for 2022 Community Grants is now open. Applications are due Friday, Oct. 15, 2021.

The Ames Convention & Visitors Bureau Community Grant Program was established to support a wide range of events and activities that are open to the general public. Grants are awarded annually on the basis of merit as determined by the Ames CVB’s Grant Committee and are administered by the Ames CVB.

Grant funds are available to develop events and activities that improve the quality of life for Ames residents and have the potential to attract visitors to the Ames area or enhance a visitor’s experience. Potential grants can be cultural, educational, recreational, or artistic.

Applications are accepted from public and private organizations who demonstrate the ability to complete the proposed event or activity. The grant program is designed to encourage wide participation and innovative proposals.

Potential grant recipients are required to complete a grant application form. The Ames Convention & Visitors Bureau Community Grant Committee meets during the fourth quarter of each year to review applications for the upcoming year. The committee reviews the submitted application forms and makes a recommendation to the Ames CVB Board of Directors for final approval.
