The Princeton Area Community Foundation is currently accepting grant applications for its Community Impact Grants program.

The Community Foundation also supports the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce with its Community Development Fund Grants, and applications for that program are now available.

Nonprofits that meet eligibility requirements may apply for both grants.

Community Impact Grants, part of the Community Foundation’s discretionary grants program, are for organizations whose initiatives transform the lives of low-income individuals, families and communities. Grant proposals may or may not specifically target children and adolescents. A quarter of the Community Foundation’s annual grantmaking funds will be allocated for these grants. Guidelines are available here, and the submission deadline is Sept. 11, 2017. Before applying, applicants must attend one of our Grant Information Sessions. Register on the events page of our website.

Applications are also being accepted for grants from the 2017 Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Community Development Fund, an endowed fund held at the Community Foundation. Those grants are for nonprofit organizations that play a critical role in education, leadership, economic opportunity, and self-sufficiency. The deadline for application submission is Sept. 15, 2017.
