Projects Not Eligible for Funding and Exceptions
-Events such as forums, performances, etc. that are designed primarily for an audience to view a performance and/or hear a lecture.
-Workshops
-Conferences
-Fundraisers
-Exception: Events might be considered for funding that have a primary goal of building relationships and increasing trust among the participants as they prepare for the event (i.e., Performers or forum participants interact with each other a sufficient number of times to build a relationship and learn from one another, or members from different groups connect with one another as they prepare for a performance. Performing for an audience is not the primary desired outcome for a Front Porch project).
