Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Nonprofit organizations and nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations, coalitions, community associations, and other civic groups may apply to provide services in Fayette County, Indiana.

Faith-based organizations may apply as long as the project does not mandate participation in a religious activity as a condition for receiving services.

In the case of an organization seeking funds to help individuals in a recovery process, the community organization must be a certified site or in partnership with a certified site by the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction.

Projects must have public access for all people.

Grant funds cannot be used retroactively. Nothing can be purchased for a grant project and then reimbursed if grant funds are received.

Repeat funding for the same project may be considered two years after the initial project on a case by case basis.

The Fayette County Foundation will not indulge in discrimination as to race, color, creed, age, sex, religion, or national origin in the consideration of grant requests.

For a list of items the Foundation will normally not consider for funding please see the Grant Policy document:
