Applications Solicited for Organizational Grant Program

The City of Ferndale provides grants to various human services and economic development organizations to enhance the quality of life for homeless, low-income and senior residents and to promote economic development within the City.

The challenge given the City’s inability to serve all needs for all people and all businesses is to determine how to create the greatest impact with available funding. Proposals will be evaluated by city staff and approved or denied by the Ferndale City Council as part of the budget process.

Interested organizations can fill out the application (which can be found here or on our Forms and Applications page) by September 1st, 2021. Please email the completed application to Deputy City Clerk Sherry DeJong at sherrydejong@cityofferndale.org or drop it off at City Hall.

Seeking Grant Applications for 2022 Tourism Activities

Do you have a good idea for some tourism-related activities? We are now accepting applications for our Hotel-Motel Grant Program!

This program uses funds collected when people stay at local hotels, motels or RV parks to help encourage additional tourism in Ferndale.

Funding from the program may be used, directly by local jurisdictions, or indirectly through a convention and visitors bureau or destination marketing organization, for the marketing and operations of special events and festivals and to support the operations and capital expenditures of tourism-related facilities owned by nonprofit organizations described under section 501(c)(3) and section 501(c)(6) of the internal revenue code of 1986, as amended.

The Hotel-Motel Grant Program is managed by the Deputy City Clerk, and recommendations on funding are made by the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee to the City Council, which has final say over allocation of funding.

DEADLINE IS JULY 26th, 2021. No exceptions. You can find the application here.

Please send all completed applications and any questions to Deputy City Clerk Sherry DeJong by email here.

Note – the application has been updated from previous years to reduce the paperwork burden, please read through the new requirements if you are a returning applicant.
