The city does apply for and does receive some grants, and additional efforts to win grant funds are ongoing. Most grants, however, are generally for new projects and not maintenance needs. In addition, they require the city to provide some portion of “matching funds” in advance. Without revenue to provide these, we don’t qualify to receive these grants. Also, Folsom is not classified as a “disadvantaged community” which, ironically, puts us at a disadvantage in applying for grants.
