Grant Description
Grant to a Tennessee nonprofit organization in eligible locations for programs that address social issues. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting an application. Eligible organizations are those that address the areas of homelessness, recidivism, poverty, human trafficking, addiction, illiteracy, and hunger. Organizations must be located in and serve residents of at least one of the ten counties in the Nashville Economic Market area (Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, Wilson).

Specifically, Impact100 Nashville is seeking to award this grant to the nonprofit that offers creative and innovative services to its population to facilitate the transition out of a cyclical lifestyle and is able to show that results of their services ended the cycle for the population it serves.
