CONNECTS Grant Application
The purpose of the Georgetowne CONNECTS grant is to increase social activities and community among the Georgetowne HOA membership. Social activities create connection and a vibrant community which creates a desirable place to live thereby increasing property values. Georgetown CONNECTS social events must be open to ALL Georgetowne Homeowners and should be planned to encourage broad participation from members.
The application process
In order to receive Georgetowne CONNECTS funds to assist with the costs for a proposed activity, this application must be submitted to the Board of Directors (BOD). Applications are accepted through out the year until budgeted funds are expended. A completed application can be mailed, emailed, or presented in person to the BOD by requesting to be placed on the agenda at a quarterly meeting of the HOA BOD. Approval is expected to take 3 weeks if the application is not submitted in time to be put on the agenda at a scheduled board meeting. Please DO NOT assume an application will be approved.
Use of Georgetowne CONNECTS grant funds
Funds can be requested for the following: postage, refreshments, rental fees (i.e., bouncy house, speaker fee, etc….), printing costs or other small expense related to a social event. The BOD anticipates funding 3-5 grant requests per calendar year at $100-$250 per request. After review by the BOD, the requestor will be notified of the results, the amount of the grant, and provided instructions for how to receive reimbursement for costs up to the amount awarded.
After the event – share the news!
Homeowners who accept Georgetowne CONNECT funds for social events are expected to file a brief summary of the social activity including the date the event was held and the number of Georgetowne homeowners who participated. 3-4 pictures are also requested. The purpose of this report and pictures is to highlight Georgetowne’s vibrant social community for public viewing on the HOA website and in newsletters.
