Grant Description
Grants of up to $1,500 to North Carolina nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, and faith-based entities to benefit residents in eligible locations. Funding is intended for programs related to the field of human relations. Eligible projects, activities, and services benefit the residents of the City of Hickory.

The goal of this initiative is to promote positive relationships within the community through dialogue, education, programs, and resources. 

The Community Relations Council provides grants for projects or programs that directly support the CRC's mission. Priority will, generally, be given to projects that are designed to deliver the greatest impact on positive human relations, that are most effective in bringing different sub-communities of Hickory together, and that provide services and resources to the people who can most benefit. 

Funds may be used for contracts for services and/or specified honoraria provided the proposed recipient is providing direct services to the target population.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Applicants may include churches, schools, institutions, 501(c)(3) organizations and other tax-exempt organizations. Applications from non-profit organizations that have not received formal tax-exempt status may be considered if the group provides sufficient information on the purpose and activities of the organization and the proposed project or program.

The HCRC will not consider applications for programs or projects for political purposes, or which promote a particular religious point of view. Funds from the grant program may not be used to pay salaries or construct facilities.

The HCRC will not consider applications from the City of Hickory departments but will accept proposals from related support organizations if the requested funds will be used to provide a program or service for which no city dollars are available.
