Grants to Arkansas nonprofits, hospitals, and government agencies in eligible counties for a wide range of local and State-wide projects. Funding is intended for activities that address community needs. Applying organizations must describe how they are uniquely qualified to successfully implement the proposed program and potentially serve as a model for other organizations addressing similar community needs.

The following factors will be taken into consideration:

- Potential benefit to the particular population served and to the community as a whole
- Capacity of the organization to achieve the results outlined in the proposal
- Likelihood for success, including adequacy of objectives, methods, budget and time frame
- Evidence of a plan for evaluating the success of the project or program
- Proposals that have the promise of sustainability beyond the period of the grant
- Evidence of cooperation or collaboration with other organizations working in the same field
- Evidence of local financial support (including but not limited to in-kind support) and the likelihood of future support for the project or program
- The innovation and creative approach manifested in the proposal

Please note that if you are applying for funding on behalf of a statewide organization, your proposal is more likely to be successful if you can demonstrate that the project will be based in or have a direct impact on the county where you are applying. See a list of eligible counties in Additional Eligibility Criteria or Grant Coverage Areas below.
