CURRENT COVID APPLICATION DEADLINE:
JUNE 8, 2020 BY 5:00 PM
Qualified Applicants for initial funding:
- Organizations with Internal Revenue 501(c)(3) status and qualified tax-exempt entities (schools, government agencies) supporting access to appropriate health care and meeting essential human needs such as food access and emergency services for individuals and families in Gunnison County impacted by the virus. (Note: CFGV is not able to grant to individuals; only to agencies that in turn serve individuals and families.)
The next round of grant awards will be considered during the week of the current deadline, and additional rounds of grants, as funding is available through community support, will be made on an ongoing and rolling basis. Other sources of funding should be expended before the COVID-19 funds are requested and used.
Intermediate needs will be evaluated at the time the first wave of the crisis has passed and will be dependent on donations to the fund.
You may find the full grant application guidelines here and a list of FAQs here. To understand how the Community Advisory Committee considers applications for funding, you may find the scoring guidelines here.
Any organization who received funding must submit a final report within three (3) months of the award date. You may download the report here and either submit by email to Maryo Ewell or mail it to PO Box 7057, Gunnison, CO 81230. Note: a grant report is due for each award made, so if an organization received more than one award for the same program or project, a report is due for every award; the reports may be identical but must contain the proper award information.
