COMMUNITY AND FAMILY PARTNERSHIP FUNDING REQUEST
CRITERIA FOR ELIGIBILITY
A. The applicant’s primary geographical area of service and physical location must be in the Community and Family Partnership service area (Platte, Colfax).
B. Requests for support must be consistent with the mission of the Community and Family Partnership (CFP): To assist children, youth, and families to be healthy and resilient through a prevention network of community resources.
C. A representative from the funding recipient program or agency will be asked to attend bi-monthly Community Collaborative meetings hosted by the Community and Family Partnership. These meetings are the first Wednesday of the month at 9:30 am switching between locations in Columbus and Schuyler (please refer to CFP Coordinator for further information). The purpose of these meetings are to network with other agencies, identify community needs, and to work on community initiatives identified by the Collaborative.
D. Funding recipients will be allowed to seek extended funding beyond the first year of funding. This does not, however, obligate the Leadership Board to fund the reapplication but only to consider its request. To be eligible for consideration for a second period of funding, the organization must meet the following criteria.
1. Demonstrated effectiveness of the applicant’s program in meeting the proposed community need.
2. A clear and operable plan for generating other resources. The Community and Family Partnership encourages applicants to avoid an over-dependence on only a few grant sources.
3. A financial/program report from the preceding year.
E. Community and Family Partnership funding requests will be considered on an annual basis and are subject to funds avaliable at the time of application.
Our mission is to assist children, youth, and families to be healthy and resilient through a prevention network of community resources.
