Term of Contract:

Funds must be used within six (6) months of the grant award.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are accepted from 501(c) 3 tax exempt organizations with a 509 IRS designation residing in Lake, Ashtabula, and Geauga counties.

Certain organizations that are affiliated with a state or national organization may fall under the parent organization’s 501(c)3 group exemption. As an example, the Catholic Church uses the group exemption for all of its churches. Schools and civic organizations such as food pantries and the girl scouts are further examples.

The Grant application cannot include project costs which would be provided by/or paid to an internal employee of the organization (or parent organization) either directly or indirectly as a result of the project. Additionally, all project costs must be traceable to an actual purchase receipt or purchase order and funds must be used within 6 months of the grant award. As further clarification, the following costs are not allowable:

- Salaries, payroll taxes, or other employee expenses that would be paid directly or indirectly to an employee of the organization to complete the project.
- Refreshments
- Service agreements
- Mileage or other travel expenses
- Fundraising direct or indirect expenses or costs
