Funding Opportunities


 October 2015

ARCH is please to share with you these funding opportunities:

1) AmeriCorps State and National Grants FY 2016: AmeriCorps awards grants to organizations to implement programs that utilize AmeriCorps members to engage in evidence-based interventions to strengthen communities. The Corporation for National and Community Services expects to fund programs working in the following ten focus areas.

An area that might be most relevant to supporting respite is Veterans and Military Families. Initiatives to be fund are those that are positively impacting the quality of life of veterans and improving military family strength.

Organizations that propose to operate in only one state must apply through the Governor-appointed State or Territory Commissions. Each state and territory administers its own selection process and puts forward to CNCS the applicants it selects to compete for funding. State applicants must contact their State Commissions to learn about their state or territory processes and deadlines which may be significantly before the CNCS deadlines and may have additional requirements.

Letter of Intent (Required): Dec 9, 2015
Application Deadline: Jan 20, 2016

2) Griswold Cares Foundation: The Griswold Cares Foundation provides grants to 501(c)(3) organizations that advance the Foundation’s mission of supporting respite and short-term home care services for those in need. Most grants will be made in the $500 to $2,000 range. Higher amounts may be awarded when a program is an exceptional fit with Foundation’s mission or giving priorities. The Griswold Cares Foundation typically awards grants for one year. Funding priorities focus on support programs that provide respite care and short-term home care. The Foundation will consider funding local community and grassroots organizations who provide other programs and services with the intent of helping those of limited financial means to age in place.
