The key takeaways from the CFNCR email:
Proposals for the first grant round must be submitted via The Community Foundation’s online application system no later than 4pm on November 25, 2013.
The first round of grants, of up to $100,000, will be awarded for project/program support. The fund will also provide one-time capacity building grants that can be administered over a three year period. A second grant round will be issued in the spring of 2014 for capacity building efforts.
Two grantseeker information sessions will be held on October 28th and 31st. All interested applicants are encouraged to participate. Please contact Jennylee Hansen, Program Associate for the City Fund at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for one of the information sessions.
The launch, as you may know, was delayed as a result of the federal government shutdown.
