BCIC looking to partner with nonprofit organizations and city departments to promote economic development for Brownsville, Texas.

BROWNSVILLE, TX – April 30, 2018 – Brownsville’s “type b” economic development organization, Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC), is looking to partner with nonprofit organizations and city departments to promote economic development for Brownsville, Texas through community development projects.

All nonprofit organizations and city departments that are interested in participating for this opportunity are welcomed to apply for “BCIC’s Partnership Grants," which are designed to engage in the necessary community development needed to promote economic development opportunities for Brownsville, Texas.

The “BCIC Partnership Grants” will ultimately replace the previously known “Promotion and Community Events Grants” in order for BCIC to continue its full implementation of their 3-Year Economic Development Strategic Plan. The replacement, however, will not change policies and funding opportunities that many organizations and city departments have utilized before from BCIC.

Through this opportunity, the BCIC will partner with organizations by supplementing up to $5,000 towards their marketing efforts of community events or initiatives that promote tourism and boost local spending within Brownsville, Texas.

The “BCIC Partnership Grants” will be open for all nonprofit organizations and city departments on April 30, 2018. All nonprofit organizations and city departments that apply will be required to attend BCIC’s Info-Session, where they will learn about BCIC’s application policy, mission, strategic goals to promote economic development through community development, and marketing opportunities to promote Brownsville, Texas. Applicants will be required to apply online through www.bcic.us/funding and attend BCIC’s Info-Session on May 15th at 10:00AM.

For more information concerning BCIC’s Partnership Grants or BCIC’s 3-Year Economic Development Strategic Plan, please contact Josh Mejia at jmejia@bcic.us.
