Application Process

The Foundation for Community Care Board of Directors reviews all grant funding applications at the regularly scheduled May Board Meeting. Applicants will be notified of a decision on or before June 1st. In the event of an approved grant, funds can be distributed by either vendor check (please submit an invoice/bill), or by a check specifically to your organization (please submit a copy of the paid invoice/bill). The funds allocated for this project will be held by the Foundation until the proper paperwork has been completed. Please note that grant funds will only be available during the applicable fiscal year, between the dates of July 1st and June 30th.

Grant Report

Grant recipients are required to submit a final report on the use of granted funds. The grant report is simply an evaluation by the grant recipient of the project funded. The Foundation for Community Care evaluates the outcomes of grant awards, and therefore the timely submission of a grant report is very important. If a grant recipient is unable to meet the reporting deadline, we request that they contact the Foundation in writing or by phone prior to the due date. No new grant requests will be considered until a satisfactory report has been received.

Deadline

To allow ample time for the Foundation Board members to review each request thoroughly, applications must be received by 4 pm April 30th.

The Senior Executive of the Foundation for Community Care is available to discuss application procedures.
