County, Metro Governments Invited to Apply for Spay/Neuter Grants
Applications Due by July 15
FRANKFORT (June 10, 2019) — Spay/neuter grants for 2019 are now available for county and metropolitan governments in Kentucky.
The Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board will award up to $2,500, a $500 increase over last year. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis. No match is required, but preference will be given to applicants that provide the highest percentage of matching dollars.
Governments may partner with non-profit organizations to obtain the best use of resources. Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek out the best price possible for the average anticipated cost per alteration, as grant amounts will be based in part on those costs. Favorable ranking will be given to spay/neuter programs that are mandatory.
Kentucky county and metro governments interested in applying for spay/neuter grants may download the application at kyspayneuter.com/documents/GrantApplication.pdf.
Emailed or scanned applications must be received by Monday, July 15. Email all documents and required attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. No faxed applications or mailings will be accepted.
The majority of funds for the program come from the sale of spay/neuter license plates. The board encourages Kentucky motorists to buy the plate when they buy or renew their vehicle licenses so the program may continue. You also may donate online or by check.
