The Dubois County Community Foundation has opened its application process for this year’s competitive grants cycle.

Over 90 thousand dollars are set to be awarded to local non-profits this year. Susan McGovern with the Dubois County Community Foundation says the grant cycle is a way to identify projects that will have the greatest impact in the area:

The Grants Committee will review and consider all of the proposals submitted and make their recommendations to the foundation’s Board of Directors. The evaluation process is based on the feasibility of a project, the soundness of its implementation plan, the viability of long-term financing for a project, and the fulfillment of community need.

The deadline for submission of proposals is July 1st. For more information, call the Dubois County Community Foundation at 482-5295 or go to dccommunityfoundation.org to find a preliminary proposal form.
