The online application, eligibility requirements, and a list of frequently asked questions are available on the Linn County website at LinnCountyIowa.gov/Witwer. The application deadline is December 9, 2022. This is a competitive grant process.
The funding for the grant program comes from a trust established by Weaver Witwer, a prominent Cedar Rapids grocer and landowner who died in 1979. The trust provides $80,000 annually for this grant program.
