Community Improvement Grant Focus Area – Iosco County Economic Focus
Preference may be given to projects and programs that aim to impact the economic condition in Iosco County. We want to see our local nonprofits collaborate to address the issues at their root causes and move our communities forward in this area. Each year, a portion of ICCF’s grant dollars will be used to support nonprofits working to make Iosco County a bright, vibrant place for people to live year round, with opportunities for growth and development while maintaining the uniqueness of our area. Grants for ALL types of charitable programs will be considered for funding; however, preference may be given to those that fall within the scope of our Iosco County Economic Focus.
ICCF Grant Policy
On August 16, 2007, the ICCF Board of Directors adopted a new grant policy. Among the changes is one that will affect our grantees and applicants:
An organization may apply each year for a grant. However, no program may be funded for more than two (2) consecutive grant cycles or two (2) years, whichever is longer. The Community Foundation will not support the sustained funding of any program. Repeated applications and previously funded projects cannot be guaranteed additional funding after the first two years or grant cycles of funding.
A Final Grant Report will also be required upon completion of your project if it has been awarded funding. This information will be sent to you with any grant notification.
You may use our budget sample to assist you in completing the budget section of your application. (Budget Sample PDF) 59kb
