Program Funding

Each year, the Town Council allocates all of Gilbert's Neighbor 2 Neighbor funds, and a portion of  Gilbert’s general funds to non-profit agencies that provide services to Gilbert residents. These agencies are selected through a competitive grant process as noted above.  If interested in how you can assist in supporting these non-profit agencies, click on the Neighbor 2 Neighbor link above.  

These agencies provide a wide range of services for Gilbert residents who have limited incomes or are in need of non-profit services.  Funding priorities are based on the results of the 2014 Human Service Needs Assessment and include nine (9) priority populations as listed in order below:

  • Priority 1: Families/Individuals in Crisis 
  • Priority 2: Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment Services    
  • Priority 3: Low/Moderate Income Individuals and Families

  • Priority 7: Youth 
  • Priority 8: Immigrants
