For all grants: Both new and existing programs are eligible for funding but funding is only awarded to non-profit organization, i.e. 501c that offer local services that target Southampton Town residents.
The Town Board supports the philosophy that it is more effective to provide smaller amounts of funding to a greater number of applicants than it is to underwrite fewer programs. Applicants should continue to seek other avenues of support for the balance of their program funding needs.
