The City of Newport News recognizes that not-for-profit organizations fill an important role in improving the quality of life for our community. To encourage not-for-profit organizations to provide services to residents of Newport News, the City has an established system to award monetary grants to qualified organizations.

These grants are intended to:
  • Provide funding to not-for-profit agencies serving the City of Newport News whose services are easily accessible to Newport News residents and whose service costs can be documented.
  • Provide incentive funding to develop new services or capital improvements to meet specific needs of Newport News residents, and to complement services provided by City departments.

These grants are incentives to foster new services or expand existing services in the City. A goal of the process is to encourage community/local/citizen support for programs so that City grant funds can be replaced with funding from other sources. This will allow the City grant funds to be directed toward new programs in the future.


The Community Support Agency Grant request consists of four parts:
  1. General Information
  2. Financial Information
  3. Specific program information for which funding is requested
  4. Performance Measurement and Outcome Measurement information
