County Seeks Proposals for Agency Partner Grant Program Funding
Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County Department of Planning and Development is requesting proposals from non-profit community based organizations for the 2016 Agency Partner Grant Program. The Agency Partner Grant Program establishes a process by which Dutchess County awards funding to nonprofit agencies based on unmet resident needs and outcomes.
Program funding will be awarded in the following areas:
The 2016 grant program includes two types of applications: New Activity and Renewal Activity. The New Activity application should be submitted if the activity an agency is seeking funding for has not previously been awarded funding through the Agency Partner Grant Program. The Renewal Activity application should be submitted if the activity an agency is seeking funding for has received funding previously through the Agency Partner Grant Program. Applications for the 2016 Agency Partner Grant are due to the Department of Planning and Development on or before Friday, January 8, 2016 by 12:00 pm.
The Department of Planning and Development has scheduled a Grant Workshop on Wednesday, November 18th at 10:00 am at the Planning Department Offices, located at 27 High Street in Poughkeepsie. Anyone considering submitting an application is STRONGLY encouraged to attend. Please RSVP to the Planning Department at (845) 486-3600 or email@example.com. The meeting will provide a review of the program goals, application forms, and answer any questions you may have regarding the application process.
The implementation of this program is based on funding availability. Funding for this program has been included in the County Executive’s proposed 2016 budget, but will not be guaranteed until the 2016 budget is adopted by the County Legislature, which is expected in early December.
