Grant process for 2007 announced 

The Grant Program for 2007 has been revised. All organizations are invited to submit a one page summary, including the budgeted grant amount to the Foundation. This one page summary will only be accepted online. Organizations that are applying for grants must be located in Monroe County.

The Foundation will accept all summaries for review. Upon review the Foundation will determine which programs meet the goals and objectives of the Foundation. Successful organizations will then be asked to submit a full grant package. Organizations that are asked to submit the full grant package are not guaranteed funding.

The Foundation will accept grant requests for all qualified organizations. On the recommendation of our Community Focus Group our primary focus will be the following areas: Early Childhood Education, Workforce Development, Unemployment and Public Safety.
