Local Partnership Funding Grants Available
Applications are open for Local Partnership Funding grants. Each year the Littleton City Council considers requests for discretionary grants of up to $25,000, historically from nonprofit organizations that serve Littleton residents, and awards the grants to the organizations during the budget process. This is a competitive process as council always receives more requests than it has funds available. Applications are due by August 8.

The piglets are a bit shy, so if they’re hiding in the closed part of their shed, wait quietly and one is bound to tumble out to explore within moments.
