Grant Description
Grants of up to $10,000 to New York nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and community members in eligible locations to address community needs.

The fund seeks to support new or existing projects, programs or organizations that have a meaningful and positive impact on the residents of northeast Dutchess County, with particular emphasis on low income and/or underserved adults and children. Under the guidance of a group of community advisors, it reviews and makes grants in response to applications it receives, provides technical assistance to nonprofits, and initiates projects to provide services that do not yet exist.
Requests will be considered for general operating support, new or existing projects and programs, and capital projects. Teachers, students, parents, or community members may apply for projects that enhance the educational experience for the youth in the aforementioned towns.
