City of Jacksonville


Public Service Grant Program

The Public Service Grant Program (PSG) contracts with Duval County non-profit agencies who have been in operation for a minimum of three years to equip families and residents 18 years and old with necessary tools to facilitate their well being through intervention, education and opportunity. The selection process of PSG awards is outlined in Chapter 118.806 and evaluated by the Public Service Grant Council.

Public Service Grants are available to nonprofits that serve categories of Most Vulnerable Persons (MVP) and/or Needs.  Most Vulnerable Persons and/or Needs are groups of citizens or the common needs and traits requiring services from Requesting Agencies, whose needs have justified priority consideration over other deserving populations or groups in competition for City funding.  The PSG Council assesses the needs of the community and recommends the categories of Most Vulnerable Persons and/or Needs for the upcoming fiscal year.
