Deerfield Community Development Trust Fund

The general purpose of the Deerfield Community Development Trust Fund is to provide for improvements in the Village that will enhance the quality of life for current residents and future generations.

The Village of Deerfield is taking grant requests for the Community Development Trust Fund until February 1. According to the application, the purpose of the fund is to improve quality of life for current and future residents.

Eligible projects will be included in one of six categories: street system and adjoining improvements; sanitary sewer system; storm sewer system; water system; public buildings; parks or recreational facilities; or any community projects that will improve the village and are consistent with the fund’s intent.

Projects excluded from the fund are any that will mostly benefit private citizens, firms, or groups and the fund may not be used to fund operating costs of any program, project or group.

Any Village of Deerfield resident or village community organization is eligible to apply. Hard Copies of the applications should be submitted to the Village Clerk by FEBRUARY 1st.

The grant request asks applicants to give a description of their project, describe how the project will match the values of the Community Development Trust Fund, provide the budget and amount of matching funds a group will contribute, and how the group’s membership will be involved in the project.
