Apply for a Grant

Focused on Helping People

Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis following a review process by our Board of Directors and Grants Committee. 

As we have a new grant application system, all users will need to create a new account including new login and password.

Please plan to apply in the quarter that best fits with your mission: 

  • First Quarter: Hunger prevention; assistance for refugees and immigrants
  • Second Quarter: Housing and homeless services; services for incarcerated individuals or those re-entering society
  • Third Quarter: Health programming; services for those with disabilities; addiction treatment and recovery services
  • Fourth Quarter: Community service organizations that provide a variety of services and any other unique programs not specifically listed.

Applying For A Grant 

  • You will be asked to provide detailed information about how an identified community need will be met through the program for which funding is requested.
  • If approved, you will be notified and asked to submit a full grant application.
