The City Council approved a revision to its Charitable Gambling Ordinance that will grant larger awards to fewer organizations to make a more significant impact for each organization. A three-year rotating schedule will be developed to spread out funding in these priority areas
Year 1: Social Supports and Senior Citizen Services
Year 2: Youth Programs and Community Engagement & Events
Year 3: Environment & Natural Resources and Safety Programs
In a typical year about 20 organizations are awarded Charitable Gambling Funds, each varying from $200 to about $4,000.
Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2021 for 2022 Awards. Apply at forms.maplewoodmn.gov/Forms/CGTF or call Lois Knutson (651) 249-2051.
