Grants ranging from $50 to $5,000 to Hall County Area, Nebraska nonprofit organizations to meet a broad range of community needs. Applicants are encouraged to contact program staff prior to applying. Program areas include arts and culture, children and youth, community health, education, community enrichment, and basic needs.

Preference will be given to programs that meet one or more of the following criteria:
-Reach a broad segment of the community
-Assist those whose needs are not adequately met by existing services
-Promote cooperation among organizations and are developed in consultation with other groups
-Improve the organization's effectiveness
-Encourage sustainability of the grantee through matching gifts and funding from other sources
-Promote accessibility of programs to include "underserved and underrepresented" populations

Program Areas:

1) Arts and Culture

Visual art, literature, dance, theater and music can bring people together through shared experience and understanding. These grants should strive to stimulate thought, communication, and creativity through programs in the arts and humanities that enhance or develop the common aesthetic spirit through education, creation or performance.

2) Basic Needs

Nationally, the basic needs approach focuses on addressing poverty and is one of the major approaches to the measurement of absolute poverty. It attempts to define the resources for physical well-being. A traditional list of immediate "basic needs" is food (including water), shelter, clothing and physical well-being.

3) Children and Youth

These grants should help children grow - physically, socially, and intellectually - into healthy, mature, and productive adults through programs that ensure all children are supported, nurtured, and protected in their homes and communities through programs that focus on childhood development and reduce at-risk behavior through prevention programs.

4) Community Enrichment

A community must consistently nurture its development to sustain and increase its vitality. These grants should address the challenges that face the local community through programs that promote economic development, improve community services, and encourage residents to get involved in community improvement projects by providing the training, tools, and resources needed to enrich the community.

6) Community Health

Individuals and families in the community must have the resources they need to remain self-sufficient and provide safe, secure homes. These grants should encourage healthy lifestyle choices that promote healthy behaviors and provide access to the resources needed to build healthy individuals, neighborhoods, and communities.

7) Education

Today, more than ever education touches the lives of people of all ages. These grants should focus on supplementing the traditional educational system to ensure children have access to the tools they need to build a foundation for lifelong learning. The programs/projects should help people learn to cope with life's challenges, gain skills to better take care of their families and ensure access to academic and technological opportunities, thus allowing individuals to develop their personal, social and professional skills.

$50 - $5,000
