The foundation accepts online grant applications anytime throughout the year. There are no more spring or fall cycles, or separate applications for different types of requests.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the HCCF staff to discuss their project or need prior to starting an application to aid in determining additional information the board may require.
Applications must typically be submitted 90 days prior to an event to be considered. Applicants have 60 days to complete a grant application once started. Grant requests $200,000 and over, are subject to an additional review from the Finance Committee. Decisions will typically be made within 120 days of the agency’s successful application submission.
Reviews of completed applications are mandatory. Applicants must contact the HCCF staff prior to submission to request a review.
Youth Philanthropy Council Grant Applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on February 28th to be considered. Grants awarded will be no more than $2,000.00 and projects should be geared toward youth driven, community service projects. Award recipients will be notified in April.
