2022 Community Support Program  –  Guidelines

Channahon’s Three Rivers Festival helps facilitate community-based activities and services through an annual Financial Support Program. Organizations may apply for funding to create, expand, or develop programs, services and activities that directly benefit Channahon area residents. Funding is derived from Three Rivers Festival proceeds.


Funding is open to organizations, local governments, and businesses to allow them to create or expand community services that directly benefit residents in Channahon and adjacent unincorporated areas.


A maximum of $1,000 allowed per application. If granted, the award amount will be at the discretion of the Committee. Total annual funding available varies each year. A submitted application is not a guarantee that funding will be awarded.

Applications should be for programs, services, and activities that will be completed within one year from the date of application, unless an extension is requested at the time of application.


Please use the space provided on the one-page application form. Do not add any additional pages or other documents. Applications are due no later than Friday, March 4, 2022   Applications received after that date cannot be considered. We may call or e-mail the contact person for the organization, in case follow-up or additional information is necessary. Click Here for 2022 Grant Application


Finalist selection will be made by a subcommittee consisting of the members of the Three Rivers Festival Executive Committee; the two Citizen Representatives to the Three Rivers Committee; and the Village of Channahon Chief of Police or his designee. The selection subcommittee has the full and final discretion to determine and make awards.

Funding will not be approved when the proposal results only in a financial gain or benefit to the organization requesting the funding, without a community benefit.

2020 Grant Recipient:  Post Grant Report   –  2020 grant recipients need to complete a post project report, detailing the use of funds, for consideration for 2022 funding.

Applications from groups that did not receive funding in the previous year, may receive priority consideration.

Applications from organizations that have supported the Three Rivers Festival financially or with volunteers will receive priority consideration.

Applications for services and activities reaching the highest number of local Channahon residents, or filling significant community needs, may receive priority consideration.


  Check here if your group would be interested in volunteering for the Festival. (We will contact you with further information.)
