The SL4B Joint CIP Program is an opportunity to enhance the community through projects initiated by community based organizations for public improvements in which SL4B participation will increase the quality or scope and/or decrease time of development.
Fiscal Year 2020 budgeted funds are $200,000.
Applicants must be a community-based organization.
The project cannot conflict with any existing City or SL4B plans or policies.
The project must be located within the City’s corporate limits.
The project must be located on public property, in an easement or on private property (if the Sugar Land 4B Corporation determines that private ownership does not diminish or change the public benefit of the project).
The applicant must contribute at least 50 percent (and must provide proof of financial ability to share the cost).
The applicant cannot have started the project or expended funds on any component of the project for which it is seeking funding through the JCIP program.
Pursuant to state law, a public hearing is required before any funds are spent on a project.
Deadline for application submissions is the last business day in February: Next deadline is February 28, 2020.
Applications submitted after the deadline will be considered in the order received on a case by case basis until all funds appropriated for that year are expended.
If the request is approved, the applicant must enter into a written contract with the City.
Unless the City determines otherwise, the applicant will manage the project.
Applicants who apply as an Homeowners Association or Recognized Community Group should also register with the Office of Communications and Community Engagement by using the Neighborhood Registration form located on the City's website in the Form Center or by clicking here.
