GRANT PROGRAMS

Reinvesting YOUR sales tax dollars in YOUR community.

Grant programs...

The Dublin Economic Development Corporation, a Type B corporation funded through sales tax, reinvests back into the community in job creation and retention, housing, community improvement, cleanup/beautification and tourism.

  • Several types of grants are available during the current fiscal year.

  • Grants are considered on a first- come, first-served basis until funds are depleted. 

  • Contact the EDC for an application.

(1) Grant applicants must meet several criteria to quality and proof of current utility and property tax payment is required. In most cases, only one grant will be awarded per year to an individual although with real estate, each separate 9-1-1 address is considered eligible for improvement grants.
