Grants

Total Grants Approved by McKinney Community Development Corporation: $138,000,000

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, community service organizations and for retail development.

Three Grant Types

MCDC provides three types of grants:

  • Project grants to improve the quality of life in McKinney and meet the eligibility requirements established by Texas state law.
  • Promotional / Community Event Grants for activities that promote the City of McKinney for business development or tourism.
  • Retail Development Infrastructure Grants, created as a pilot program in 2019 to provide funding for infrastructure improvements for landmark retail properties in the city of McKinney. 

If you have a project, event, activity or retail infrastructure project that falls into one of these three categories and you would like to apply for funding from MCDC, consult the Grant Guidelines PDF to see if you qualify, then review the grant calendar (which is included in the Grant Guidelines) to see when you should apply for the type of grant you are interested in.
