Applicants must have been in existence for a minimum of three (3) years and have tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Due to COVID-19, the process for the Community Mini Grants has been streamlined this year. The Credit Union will be deciding these grants internally and in a much faster timeframe, in an effort to get funds out to the nonprofit organizations who need it most. The application has been shortened, and the Credit Union has also loosened restrictions so that it can review requests for operating costs or programmatic changes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
