February 15 for Cook County Community Fund Grant Projects
The Cook County Community Fund (CCCF) is seeking nonprofit organizations with ideas for grant projects ranging from $1000 to $5000 for its spring grant round. If awarded, funds would be available in May.
Funding is generally granted for initiatives that meet the changing needs of the Cook County areas in the following five areas:
Arts : Community Development : Education : Environment : Human Services
The first step to applying is submitting a letter of intent which briefly outlines the project. A Letter of Intent helps the applicant and the Community Foundation communicate to ensure the project and the guidelines align before completing a full request.
Letters of Intent are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15, two weeks before the grant application deadline. Letters of Intent are submitted through the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation's website.
Early submission of Letters of Intent is strongly encouraged. Those whose letters are approved can then submit a full application, due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1, also through the website.
