Tarkio Renewal is offering a 50/50 reimbursed matching grant program designed to encourage and assist with business and home improvement in Tarkio, Missouri. The purpose is to improve the look of the community. The grant amount will equal up to 50% of the cost of eligible improvements, up to a maximum of $1,000. For example, if a total project cost is $1,200, Tarkio Renewal’s reimbursed grant is $600 and the business or individual will provide $600 of their own funds. If a total project cost is $2,200, the grant will be $1,000 and the business or individual will be responsible for the rest. In-kind donations (labor, etc.) do not count toward the applicant’s match. Tarkio Renewal could award up to $10,000 each year.

Applications will only be accepted via mail. Applications will be date-stamped by postmark upon receipt and will be considered at regular Tarkio Renewal meetings in the order they were received. Only new projects are eligible. Expenses incurred prior to approval of a project are not eligible for reimbursement. Projects must be completed by October 31, 2019, or the funding will be withdrawn and returned to the grant pool. Grant recipients will receive funds upon completion of the project and the submittal of all required documentation.

Applications can be picked up at the Tarkio Avalanche or received via email (contact acdc@atchisoncounty.org to receive an electronic copy).
