Grant Opportunities


The Community Response Grant is designed to respond swiftly in support of non-profit organizations that are serving the escalating needs of our communities by providing funds to help solve short-term emerging needs and programs. Our expertise in community partnerships, resources, and connections ensures we are addressing the most pressing needs to keep our region strong and balanced. There is no set grant cycle, agencies may only submit one grant application per calendar year and the application should address the timeframe that the funds will be expended.
