The Iosco County Community Foundation (ICCF) is accepting grant applications for its Community Improvement Grant. Nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)(3) designation, schools, churches (for non-religious purposes) and government agencies serving Iosco County are welcome to apply for up to $5,000 in funding.
“Our board recently spent a lot of time evaluating our granting priority areas,” said ICCF President Tony Johnson. “In light of that, we increased the maximum grant request amount to $5,000 in hopes that if an incredible project that can affect one of those areas of interest in Iosco County comes along, we could have the ability to invest in that project with more impact.”
Johnson says all types of charitable projects are eligible for Community Improvement Grants. Of particular interest to ICCF are those addressing certain areas of education, mental health programs and child abuse prevention, workforce development projects, and environmental protection programs.
The deadline to submit completed applications is May 1, 2019.
Applications are available at iccf-online.org, where they may be completed online and submitted via email, or printed for completion. If applications are mailed, they must be postmarked by the grant deadline date and sent to the ICCF office at P.O. Box 495, Alpena, MI 49707. Applicants may also call the ICCF office for more information at 1-877-354-6881.
Funding for this grant cycle comes from the Iosco County Community Improvement Fund, as well as several other field of interest funds at the Iosco County Community Foundation.
