The Public Service Grant Council’s mission is to improve the lives of the people of Duval County by being a voice for the local nonprofit organizations who provide services through Public Service Grants.  It accomplishes this mission through the following activities:

  • Responsible for distributing the annual Public Service Grant appropriation
  • Reviews and evaluates all applications based on established criteria
  • Serves as an on-site evaluator and lead reviewer for a selected number of applicants
  • Attends orientation sessions on all review sessions
  • Assures full participation in the allocation process 

The Public Service Grant consists of up to fifteen voting members, eight of whom are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council and seven of whom are appointed by the City Council President and confirmed by City Council.  Additionally, the City Council President annually appoints a City Council Member to serve as a liaison to the Public Services Grant Council.
