On September 8, 2010, the Coachella City Council approved the Community Based Grant Program Policy and Application Form.
The Policy defines guidelines and procedures for the distribution of municipal funds which will fund, in part, community service programs and activities, and educational activities conducted by non-profit organizations, schools, and school based organizations.
