Grants to Iowa nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies in eligible regions to support programs and projects that benefit local communities. Special consideration is given to proposals that include major infrastructure components that will improve the quality of life for local residents. Projects eligible to receive grants must directly benefit the citizens of Carroll County.
To be eligible for a grant, the organization must be a “Charitable organization" as described under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code that is exempt from taxation under Section 501(a) of the code or an organization established for a charitable purpose. As described in the Iowa Code, charitable purposes include those described under IRC 501(c)(3), or those for benevolent, educational, philanthropic, humane, scientific, patriotic, social welfare or advocacy, public health, environmental conservation, civic, or other eleemosynary (charitable or relating to charity) objectives.
The CFCC generally makes grants to 501(c)(3) organizations and qualified governmental entities. As a general rule, only one project per an organization will be funded each year.
Projects eligible to receive grants must directly benefit the citizens of Carroll County. Per the Iowa Code, projects that include significant vertical infrastructure components designed to enhance local quality of life will receive special consideration.
Grants will not be awarded for annual fund raising, organizational endowment funds, deficit financing, to individuals, or for sectarian purposes.
Those projects that do not directly benefit the citizens of Carroll County will not be considered.
Grants are received anytime but are due November 30th for the current year's grant cycle.
