PCCF Now Accepting Applications for Community Impact Grants | Local News

The Pottawattamie County Community Foundation has announced that its 2022 Community Impact Grants cycle is now open. Community Impact Grants range from $500 to $5,000 and are available to nonprofit organizations and government entities doing innovative and meaningful work throughout Pottawattamie County. Projects and programming must address an identifiable need in the county and align with the Community Foundation’s mission to improve the lives of all county residents.

PCCF uses an online grant center application system, and through the platform, applicants can create an organization account to create applications, save drafts, complete reports, and access their grant history.

“We are excited to launch the application process for this year’s Community Impact Grants,” said Donna Dostal, PCCF President and CEO. “Pottawattamie County is full of outstanding organizations with programs and services designed to create real impact in our region. We are always amazed at the proposals and what our local nonprofit leaders are passionately working on to improve our community. We are excited to receive applications for this year’s grant cycle.

Grant applications must be submitted through the online portal by 11:59 p.m. on March 31. The foundation’s Impact Grants Committee — a group of county residents and board members — will review applications in April, and grant recipients will be notified later this spring.

In 2021, the PCCF awarded 40 Community Impact Grants totaling $60,040 to local nonprofits and municipal organizations, a 10% increase in available grants over the 2020 grant cycle. Grants are allocated to projects in a variety of focus areas, such as: arts and culture, community betterment, community engagement, education, environment, health, social services and youth.

The grant application link and additional information is available on the Community Foundation homepage at www.ourpccf.org.
