Special Events Committee

Special Events Grant Program 

The Village Board is committed to making Lisle a destination community and transforming Downtown Lisle into a vibrant community center. To help achieve these strategic goals, a Special Events Grant Program was created to help facilitate high quality, family-friendly events for the general public, attract visitors to Lisle and increase economic vitality. A Special Events Grant Committee manages the program.

Special Event Grants can be used to:
1.  Provide a source of income for creating NEW community events
2.  SIGNIFICANTLY enhance existing events
3.  Help fund events organized by the Special Events Grant Committee
