You can apply for a DCG entirely online within the Grants Module on this website!

  • In order to submit a DCG application the Club must have a Qualified Grant writer and a current Club MOU on file
  • DCGs are available in amounts up to $3,500 or $10,500 for certain Multiple Club Grants
  • Note: District Community Grants are paid on a reimbursable basis. For example, your club would pay, up front, the full project cost. After the project is completed, you would submit receipts and other documentation to District 5020, then receive a reimbursement check for 50% of the total Rotary Club expenses, up to a maximum of $3,500
  • A DCG project may be either a local project (your club, in your community), or an international project (with or without a host club). You will need a two-member committee in your club, and approval of your club president.
  • Date of opening applications will be announced to Club Officers  Clubs are encouraged to submit as soon as possible following opening  for two reasons.  First, grants submitted by clubs are used to prepare a “Spending Plan” that must be submitted to The Rotary Foundation (TRF) before we can receive our District Block Grant.  The Block Grant money from TRF is how the District funds DCGs. Second, all DCGs are funded by the District on a “first come, first served” basis as applied and approved
  • Projects may begin only after approval has been granted. Reimbursement will not be made for any expenses or work begun before approval is granted
  • Projects must be completed and all reports submitted by May 31st. Payment will be made once reports are accepted as complete

Each club may apply for only one DCG initially. Availability for additional applications will be announced to Club leadership if funds are still available.
