Monroe Community Foundation accepting applications
WOODSFIELD, Ohio — The Monroe County Community Foundation in partnership with the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio is accepting grant applications from nonprofits, schools and public organizations for projects and programs benefiting Monroe County residents and communities.
The 2023 application period for grant funding opens Aug. 1 and closes Sept. 12.
MCCF and FAO’s I’m a Child of Appalachia® Fund will award grants across five areas essential to creating and sustaining transformative change: arts and culture, community and economic development, education, environmental stewardship, and health and human services.
Emphasis is on supporting individuals of all ages who are spearheading projects and programs that create opportunities, meet pressing needs and unleash the potential within Monroe County. Applications that support youth-led projects are encouraged as well.
Additional information and the 2023 grant application are available at www.AppalachianOhio.org/Monroe.
“Earnings from charitable giving to MCCF are reinvested in Monroe County through annual grants that meet the county’s greatest needs and seize its most promising opportunities,” said Alyssa Stephens, MCCF committee member and community development program coordinator with the Ohio State University Extension’s Monroe County office. “In fall 2022, MCCF and FAO awarded eight grants, totaling nearly $15,000, to organizations serving Monroe County.”
