Grants of up to $7,500 to Iowa nonprofit organizations and government agencies for programs and projects that enhance the quality of life in eligible regions. Funding is intended to support impactful projects that have a lasting effect on how residents of local communities live, work, learn, and play. Previously awarded grants have funded playgrounds, little league facilities, festivals, English as a second language, and fire equipment. Projects must benefit the residents of Marshall County.

The grant application should be for a specific project. Grant application materials will be reviewed and evaluated for:

  • The project’s positive impact on how the citizens of Marshall County live, learn, work and play.
  • The population that your project serves
  • The financial feasibility and support from other financial and human resources.
  • How the project fits with other community plans (i.e. city plans, community visioning plans).
  • If the project has a well-planned approach, committed leadership and the involvement of individuals with the skills necessary to carry out the project.
  • The use of collaborative strategies that support efficiencies, increase effectiveness and build leadership for achieving broader impact without duplication.
