The Greene County Community Improvement Corporation has partnered with the Greene County Port Authority, and the Greene County Department of Development, to offer a grant program to local non-profits. The Greene County Non-profit Grant Program was created to aid non-profits with urgent, or critical funding requests.
Five grants will be awarded for $5,000 each. These are competitive grants and the following criteria will be considered:
- The number of people served by the non-profit.
- Will the project resolve a slowdown of daily operations?
- Will the project resolve safety issues?
- Will the project include matching funds from other sources
The following will not be considered: operational expenses, research, fundraising, political causes, scholarships and faith-based causes benefiting only members of a certain faith.
Applications are now available and will be accepted until 4:00 pm, August 17, 2020.
