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.
The CDD Conference Committee has made their recommendations for the 2015 Spring EOP Funding Process.  The recommendations were introduced at Common Council on April 21, 2015.  They will go before the Board of Estimates on April 27, then back to Common Council for final action on May 5.
