Applications are now available for the 2017 Grants from the Town of New Castle

 

The Town of New Castle grants money to organizations and for special events that preserve or enrich the health, education, welfare, and fitness of the community. There are two types of grants that the Town funds: Arts and Special Events grants and Community support grants. Each of these categories have to be used in the Town or support programs or activities accessible to the Town community.
