Community Partnership Fund
This fund has been established to provide monetary support to groups, organizations, and companies that serve low-income populations. It is our hope that this supportive funding will be utilized to further the strengths of our community partners to promote and maintain sustainable, healthy communities.
In considering applications for funding, applicants must meet the following criteria:
Serve a population that is at least 50% low-income
Address a critical need within the community
Located within Adair, Clark, Knox, Schuyler, or Scotland Counties
Use funds to directly serve clients (not capital improvements, etc.)
Preference will also be given to applicants who demonstrate:
Significant impact within the community
Sustainability of the project or initiative beyond the awarded grant
Providing services outside of CAPNEMO’s scope (see below)
In order to not duplicate services, the Community Partnership Fund cannot go towards programs/organizations offering the same services as CAPNEMO. The agency receives specific federal funding to be able to provide the following: Utility Assistance, Emergency Housing, and Weatherization. Therefore, this funding is intended to cover the services that the agency cannot provide; any clients seeking assistance for the services previously listed should be directed to CAPNEMO.
Community Partnership Funding is available four times per year, and any qualified organization located within the agency's five-county service area is encouraged to apply. Funding will be capped at $1,500 per quarter, and applicants should only submit requests for the amount of funding they truly need, in order to maximize the benefit of the fund to the community as a whole.
Interested parties should complete the following Community Partnership Fund application, include all supporting documentation, and submit via mail, email, or fax to:
