Emerging Opportunities Program


The Emerging Opportunities Program (EOP) was established for the support of projects and activities that address emerging needs or unanticipated opportunities which arise outside of the Community Development Division's (CDD) multi-year Purchase of Service processes. The EOP was created to allow the City to respond in a more timely manner and seize opportunities as they are presented and most viable. The EOP is also intended for new and promising organizations to receive City financial support, provided they demonstrate broad engagement in the development of the project or activity the organization proposes. Common Council allocated a total of $275,000 for EOP funding in 2015. The Spring Allocation Process will have $175,000 available to award.  The remaining $100,000 will be available for a fall allocation process.
Staff Recommendations have been posted.
The next step in the process is for the CDD Conference Committee to hear presentations from the applicants.  They will then make their own funding recommendations, which will go to Common Council for adoption.  Please see the Timeline for meeting dates.
