Additional Eligibility Criteria:

An organization must meet the following criteria in order to apply:

Organizations must be qualified as tax-exempt public charities under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or be classified as a unit of local government (including public schools). An exception is made to include fire and rescue departments.

If your organization operates as a 501 (c)(3) public charity via a fiscal agent, your application's supporting documentation must include a letter from the fiscal agent organization that verifies the relationship and includes when the relationship was established.

Faith-based organizations may apply for funding to support social outreach and charitable service programs to benefit the community-at-large, but they may not apply for general operating support. See restrictions below.

Only those organizations that serve the counties within the funding source's affiliate network will be considered. If an organization serves multiple counties within our network, that organization may complete a separate application for each of those affiliates.

Organizations must offer programs and services without discrimination on the basis of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, political affiliation or religious belief.

Preference will be given to organizations with annual budgets under $500,000.

- Activities that are restricted to members of a particular faith community or promote a specific religious doctrine
- Loans or reimbursements
