Estimated Size of Grant:

Individual grant amounts will be awarded from $500 – $3,000.

Term of Contract:

Grant projects must be completed within one year of award.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applications will be accepted from qualified, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents, such as Tribal entities, schools, and faith-based organizations) that support charitable organizations and programs in the Cordova area.

Ineligible organizations:
Individuals, for-profit, 501(c)(4), 501(c)(6), and non-Alaska based organizations, private or family foundations, state and federal government agencies, and ad hoc groups without a tax-exempt legal status are not eligible for competitive grants. Applications for religious indoctrination or other religious activities, endowment building, deficit financing, fundraising, lobbying, electioneering, or activities of political nature will not be considered, nor will proposals for ads, sponsorships, or special events (e.g. fundraisers), and any proposals which discriminate as to race, gender, marital status, sexual preference, age, disability, creed, or ethnicity.

Exceptions:
In selected cases, projects undertaken by organizations that normally fall outside the above guidelines may be able to receive funding. Examples include faith-based organizations whose proposal impacts the broader community, and units of government whose proposal extends beyond the traditional governmental functions that impact the broader community.

Fiscal Sponsorship:
Ineligible organizations may be able to receive funding for projects if they seek support from a qualified organization who is willing to provide fiscal sponsorship. Fiscal sponsors must agree to take legal and fiscal responsibility for accepting grant funds from CCF on behalf of the ineligible organization. A letter from the fiscal sponsor must be submitted with the application for the project to be considered.

Pre-Application Information:

Grant applications must be submitted online by 5:00 pm AKST on Friday, October 15, 2021.
