Economic Development And Quality Of Life Block Grants

Each year, through the budgeting process, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors allocates funds to promote economic development in Johnson County and enhance the quality of life of its residents.  The grants are taxpayer-funded and the Board of Supervisors is committed to careful allocation and oversight of these funds.  Funds approved during this budget process will be paid between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.

Process:  There are separate applications for economic development and quality of life grants although the grants are paid from the same fund and the County does not have separate allocations for each type of grant.  There are separate applications only for purposes of clarification.  Applicants should read through the objectives and criteria for each type of grant and complete the application that best fits their program.
