Community Project Sponsorship Program

The Community Project Sponsorship Program (CPSP) provides an opportunity for the County of Inyo to sponsor, in the form of financial contributions, specific events or projects undertaken by non-profit organizations in Inyo County communities that enhance visitation to the community, or otherwise provide for the cultural or recreational enrichment of the citizens of Inyo County.

Competitive Grants will be available for events and projects sponsored by local non-profit groups that will be taking place in Inyo County during 2024. The grants can be used to fund a variety of projects, programs or events. In general, the CPSP program is focused on helping local organizations promote activities and programs that bring visitors to the area, and also supports events and programs that enhance the cultural and recreational quality of life of the county’s residents. For example, past CPSP grants were used to help sponsor Playhouse 395, “Movies at the Museum,” Inyo County Search and Rescue’s Range of Light Trail Races, an outdoor youth program, the First Friday Markets, Owens Lake Bird Festival, and other events from Tecopa to Bishop. 

Up to $40,000 is available in the 2024 Competitive Grant cycle. See the attachments below for more information on how to apply.
