City Council selects nine groups in this category, $260,000 still available

KILLEEN, Texas (June 22, 2022) – Killeen City Councilmembers have requested to reopen grant funding for Killeen nonprofit youth organizations from now through July 21, 2022.

The City of Killeen Public Facility Corporation Youth Organization Assistance Nonprofit Grant Program first opened in April and closed on May 12, 2022. Council then selected 15 eligible nonprofit organizations on May 18 to receive funding, from both the PFC and American Rescue Plan Act, of up to $10,000 each. 

Six nonprofit organizations received funding through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Nine organizations received funding through the PFC for nonprofit youth grants. They include Songhai Bamboo Roots Association, CASA of Bell and Coryell Counties, Killeen Cove Chief Youth Sports Association, Educated Angels, Gardens of Hope Central Texas, Central Texas Junior Grey Wolves Youth Sports Association, AYADD Outreach Center, Hope Restoration Center and the Church of Deliverance

The application process has now reopened and is available to existing nonprofit organizations and programs that provide youth programs. Nonprofits selected for funding will not be eligible for additional awards.  

A total of $300,000 has been allocated for the Nonprofit Youth organization Assistance Program and $260,000 is still available. There are nine eligibility requirements and the deadline to apply is July 21.

Separately, the ARPA Nonprofit Grant Program reopened, after closing on May 12, following the selection of six nonprofit organizations for funding. Funding for that program is available to existing nonprofit organizations and programs to address the needs of our residents and respond to the negative impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Groups have until Nov. 24 to apply for that grant.

Information about both can be found on the City’s website at
