Community Relations Commission Grant Program

The Community Relations Commission strives to partner with groups in Oak Park that lead community programming involving issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

The CRC has a small grant program to support community activities that advance its goal to ensure good human, race and community relations.

Funds to support community programming will be allocated by evaluating the project’s alignment with the CRC mission, intended outcomes, audience and likelihood of success.

Funds may not be used for any political activities or events. Funds also cannot be used for retroactive activities or events.

No project is too small, and all are welcome to apply.


Please click the link below to apply and information about the deadline to apply will be posted on this page as it becomes available. The Village of Oak Park's Community Relations Commission's grant application deadline is September 1, 2023.
