Muskogee Forward was created through a community economic development planning process bringing together public and private sector leaders to build on the success of previous planning initiatives producing a strategic plan with specific catalyst projects. With these takeaways in mind, Muskogee Forward sets out a strategic action plan that defines the role that traditional and nontraditional economic development partners can play in addressing the community’s challenges while maximizing its many opportunities.

Grant Application Process
The City of Muskogee Foundation has two grant cycles, or “grant processes.” A regular grant process open to all organizations; and a Summer Grant process only open to programs or projects that operate primarily during the summer months. The City of Muskogee Foundation has four primary focus areas for grants. Grant committees from each focus area have established unique missions as well as general and specific types of funding. However, funding priority for all focus areas will be given to organizations serving the citizens of Muskogee, Oklahoma.
