HCCF’s Mission is focused on education, human needs, health care, community improvement or rural development. The Foundation was selected as the organization to receive, review and evaluate applications for projects based on these fields of support.

Grant applicants may seek full funding, partial funding or matching funding for projects that meet these areas of focus as well as the grant application deadline and criteria. All applicants must be not-for-profit organizations or associations. No funds will be awarded to individuals. The Foundation will accept applications postmarked by October 1, 2013.  Following the evaluation of each application, awards will be announced by the Foundation during their End of the Year Gala scheduled for November 6th.

Part of the criteria for all grants awarded in 2013 is to complete a final report within one year of those grants awarded on October 1, 2012.  In addition, a progress report is due for those awarded during the May 1, 2013 grant round.  Final Reports of completed projects and Progress Reports are required before any additional funds will be considered.
