Grants to Connecticut nonprofit organizations for a wide range of community benefit programs and capital support. Emphasis will be placed on initiatives that promote education and home ownership. Programs in the following counties will be considered: Ansonia, Cheshire, Hamden, Meriden, Middlebury, Naugatuck, Oxford, Prospect, Southbury, Wallingford, Waterbury, Watertown, and Woodbury.

Although multi-year requests will be considered, the agency must make a strong case for the need for multi-year funding in its initial request.

1. The applicant is either a public institution or a private tax-exempt organization under Sections 501(c)(3), 501(c) (4) or 501(c) (6) of the Internal Revenue Code.

2. Political, lobbying or religious activities are ineligible. Religiously affiliated organizations may propose nonsectarian projects.

3. The applying organization must have an established board, representative of the community, of which a majority is neither employees nor relatives of employees.

Through its competitive program, the Foundation makes program and capital grants. Specifically, it seeks
projects that will improve the quality of life for residents, increase the sense of community and provide lasting
benefits, particularly for youth and those in need.

The Foundation will consider requests as follows:

- For new, enhanced or expanded projects based on a documented need, having a strong project plan, specific outcomes and a feasible budget. Priority is given to requests having the highest correlation to the Foundation’s goals of promoting education and encouraging and supporting homeownership.

- For ongoing projects or programs that have proven specific benefits to the community.
- Located in or serving residents of Ansonia, Cheshire, Hamden, Meriden, Middlebury, Naugatuck, Oxford, Prospect, Southbury, Wallingford, Waterbury, Watertown or Woodbury.
- Give priority to providing programs or services over capital or equipment. Grants for previously incurred expenses are specifically prohibited.
- The Foundation gives lower priority to requests for publicly owned capital or equipment. Preference is afforded to those requests with broad, visible community involvement in the design and fundraising for the project.
- Requests from schools or for programs offered in schools by nonprofit organizations must include the approval of the superintendent as indicated by signing the grant application form.
- Organizations may submit only one grant request per round.

Applicants may contact the Ion Bank Foundation or the Connecticut Community Foundation to discuss the appropriateness of the grant request.
