Dumas Community Grant Program
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 $385,400.00 to numerous projects and programs since 2002. To be considered for a grant, projects will 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. Quality of life is typically about three environments: the social environment, the built environment, and the economic environment. People want to live happy, healthy lives, and want to be safe, and to have something useful to do, and by and large to have broad and rewarding relationships. These traits help the Dumas EDC in its efforts to attract new businesses to the area.
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 projects must be located within the City of Dumas, or show a direct impact to the residents of Dumas, and any interested 501(c) non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply.
The Community Grant Process for 2017 is now closed
