Grants & Awards


The McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC) grants funds to a broad range of organizations each year; from the Parks & Recreation department to community & convention facilities and community service organizations. MCDC provides three types of grants: projects, promotions & community events and retail development Infrastructure grants.

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 to see when you should apply for that grant.
