§ 226.02  ALLOCATION OF FUNDS.
   City of Xenia General Fund moneys allocated each year to the Community Funding Program are limited to ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) per calendar year. Community Funding may be made available under the following tiered system:
   (a)   Tier I: Charitable and non-profit organizations, including special event committees, located in and providing not-for-profit services to the city may seek funding for special programs or projects that directly benefit the people of the community. Funding for Tier I applicants is limited to three thousand dollars ($3,000.00) per application. Tier I organizations may only be awarded twice in a five-year period and not in consecutive years, unless as part of a two-phased project.
   (b)   Tier II: Recreation organizations located in and providing services to the city may seek funding for special programs or projects that benefit segments of the community. To be eligible for funding, recreation organizations must provide a scholarship program for participants of lesser-means to help offset participation costs. Funding for Tier II applicants is limited to two thousand dollars ($2,000.00) per application. Tier II organizations may only be awarded twice in a five-year period and not in consecutive years, unless as part of a two-phased project.
   (c)   Tier III: Community organizations (profit-based) and recreation organizations that do not provide scholarships for participants of lesser means that are located in and providing services to the city may seek funding for programs or projects that benefit segments of the community. Funding for Tier III organizations is limited to one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per application once within a five-year period, unless as part of a two-phased project.
