Impact Fairfield County Offers Grant Opportunity
Impact Fairfield County recently announced a new $100,000 grant opportunity. Funds will be available for significant projects or programs that reach under-served populations and highlight unmet needs in the Fairfield County area. They are seeking applications proposing a new project or program or the expansion of a proven program that will have a lasting impact on the community.
Applications can be submitted in four Focus Areas: Education, Health, Culture, and the Environment. It is anticipated that Impact Fairfield County will award one to two grant requests of $100,000 each, determined by a final vote May 11, 2016.
Organizations that apply for this grant must operate in Fairfield County. The projects or programs must be new, the expansion of an existing program, or a new or expanded collaboration, and must serve residents of and expend funds fully in Fairfield County. Applying for a grant starts with a Letter of Inquiry. Organizations may only submit one application and must choose within which Focus Area to apply. Letters of Inquiry will only be accepted online beginning Nov. 2 and will be due Dec. 1, 2015.
Impact Fairfield County’s mission is to unite women in Fairfield with a common cause. Impact collectively raises funds to allow organizations to “dream big” and annually awards $100,000 grants to local non-profits.
