All Progress Reports and Final Grant Reports should be completed via the PACGDC online grant system. Click Here to log-in to the system to access these reports for your organization, city, or school. If you have completed your grant project prior to August 1st, please contact our office and request that your assigned Progress Report be deleted from the system so that you may access your assigned Final Grant Report.

In Addition to the Grant Process

PACGDC distributes one-sixth of its proceeds to the cities in the county based on population. The cities of Emmetsburg, Graettinger, West Bend, Ruthven, Mallard, Ayrshire, Cylinder, Rodman, and Curlew will receive these funds upon receipt of signed grant agreements.

Grant Agreements will be emailed to the cities and schools in March.

Cities and Schools must submit (via the online grant system) a Final Grant Report no later than December 31st of each year.

For questions regarding the PACGDC and/or the grant process please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page.

The Palo Alto County Gaming Corp. will distribute proceeds through two distinct grant programs.

The PACGDC will distribute the majority of its funds through the grant process.  Once an organization has been awarded a grant, they will be required to sign an electronic grant agreement and submit online progress and final reports by the stated deadlines.

PLEASE NOTE: Deadline for submitting applications is December 31st. Please click on the Grant Applications link to the right. After you create an account (user name and password) for your organization, you may utilize the online grant application system.
