The City of Soldotna will begin accepting applications for their mini grant program beginning Jan. 15 through Feb. 15 to help provide funding to civic projects for the city.

Programs not eligible for funding include projects that support political issues, religious programs, travel requests, large projects or requests for individuals, among others.

Applications and required documentation must be received by midnight on the last day of the application period. Applications can be dropped off in person at the front desk in Soldotna City Hall; they can be submitted via email to or they can be faxed to 907-262-4389.

Applications will be reviewed by the city’s mini grant team at the close of each cycle. The team will then provide a written report to the Soldotna City Council.
