Estimated Size of Grant:

Grants will provide funding in the $1,000 - $10,000 range.

Term of Contract:

Multiple projects will be funded.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

-Your agency must have 501(c)(3) tax status or be an exempt municipal agency.
-Any agency based in the 16 county bi-state region is eligible to apply.
-Grants will be given for specific capital projects only, not for general operating funds.

In no way will the Foundation duplicate efforts by organizations such as United Way, Regional Arts Commission, Arts & Education Council, etc.

Your agency’s request should not be part of a larger capital campaign. RBC wants to fund projects that can be accomplished with its contribution.

If you've received funding from the It's Our Region Fund in the past, you may apply again. However, preference will be given to organizations who have not been previously selected. Only ONE application will be awarded per agency per year.

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants who provide matching funds for part of their project budget receive preference.

Applications are due on July 13, 2018. Agencies selected to be awarded a grant will receive notice no later than October 1, 2018.
