Howard County Grants
Grants are available to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and government entities. Tax-exempt organizations classified as other than 501(c)(3) are also eligible, if and only if, the project is deemed charitable; please contact our office to discuss the project’s eligibility prior to submitting a proposal. Grants selections are made in an effort to create a better quality of life for people in Howard County. A local committee reviews the applications from charitable organizations serving their community.
Beginning in 2024, the Howard County Community Foundation will be part of CFNEIA’s fall grant cycle. Howard County Community Foundation’s 2023 grant funding was awarded in April, therefore the next grant process will open on September 1, 2024.
