Community Grant Application

The Dumas EDC seeks to encourage Dumas based civic and non-profit organizations to undertake projects that improve the area’s quality of life. The Community Grant Program has awarded over $449,690.89 to numerous projects and programs since 2002. This program is for organizations that serve a high percentage of Dumas and Moore County residents, have an economic benefit, workforce component, contain recreational and/or educational value, address an identifiable community need, contain a high percentage of matching contributions, improve the area’s appearance and address a quality of life value. Quality of life values for our purposes may include health, safety, diverse recreational and cultural opportunities, a sense of community, a sense of place, and a sense of beauty.

Dumas EDC has designated a set amount of funds for this program each year and eligible projects will feature one-time project costs incurred for the acquisition or renovation of capital, physical or tangible assets. All applicants must be a Dumas based organization with all projects located within Moore County. All interested 501(c) non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply.

The 2020 Community Grant process is now closed.
