Local nonprofit representatives who are interested in receiving funds for child safety programs are invited to apply for the City’s grant-to-partnership program that allocates funding for these initiatives.
Application forms will be available Aug. 15 at www.victoriatx.gov/municipalcourt. The deadline to apply is Sept. 2.
Funding for the program comes from the $1.50 child safety fee that is assessed when residents register their vehicles in Victoria County. State law regulates allowable uses for the fund.
The court will host three application workshops at the Municipal Court chambers or through Zoom (information about how to join through Zoom will be posted at www.victoriatx.gov/municipalcourt):
- Aug. 17 at 5:30 p.m.
- Aug. 24 at 11:30 a.m.
- Aug. 31 at 5:30 p.m.
Attendance is optional but will be considered favorably during the application review process.
For more information about the program, contact the court at 361-485-3050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
