Chandler's Special Events Sponsorship Program is now accepting applications from nonprofit organizations that would like funding support for hosting special events in the community.

Funding will be awarded to qualifying events that enhance the community through such areas as cultural and educational enrichment, diversity and heritage, community pride and economic vitality.

Applications are now available online at www.chandleraz.gov/special-events and must be returned to the city's special event coordinator by 5 p.m. Aug. 23.

A panel of six citizens who serve on city-appointed boards and commissions will review the applications. The panel recommendations will then be submitted to the Chandler Cultural Foundation for approval. Awards will be announced at the end of September.

For more information or to receive an application, call (480) 782-2665 or go online to www.chandleraz.gov/special-events.
