Idaho Commerce is offering a fifth round of Idaho Gem Grants for the current fiscal year.
With the end of the Commerce fiscal year on the horizon, this is a great opportunity to help fund that placemaking project that is too small for a CDBG or does not have any direct or immediate job creation benefits.
Commerce is accepting applications for the Idaho Gem Grant programs now. Eligible applicants are limited to city and county governments. The project must be in a city with a population of no more than 10,000 or an unincorporated community.
Some of the projects eligible for this program include infrastructure and utility enhancements, public facility improvements and other publicly owned projects with the direct impact of creating jobs, attracting workforce or capturing a greater share of tourism.
Potential applicants are encouraged to contact the Idaho Gem Grant Team by email or phone (208-287-0780). The application deadline is April 29, 2022.
