Grants & Awards

Project Grants


The McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC) grants funds to a broad range of organizations each year, from the Parks and Recreation department to city tourist, community and convention facilities and community service organizations.

In 1996, McKinney voters approved the creation of the McKinney Community Development Corporation, a Type B sales tax corporation to support community and economic development projects and initiatives to make McKinney an even better place for its residents to live and enjoy life. Since its creation, MCDC has invested revenues generated from a half-cent sales tax in projects that enhance McKinney's aesthetic, cultural and leisure amenities and support business development.

Promotional & Community Events Grants


Each year, MCDC allocates a percentage of the annual budget for promotional activities and community events that promote the City of McKinney for the purpose of developing new or expanded business opportunities, and/or tourism.

Quality of Life Award


Each year, the McKinney Community Development Corporation presents a Quality of Life Award to an individual or organization that has made a positive difference in the lives of McKinney citizens.
