Program Overview


The Agency Partner Grant (APG) Program awards funding to non-profit agencies based on their ability to demonstrate they are able to fill a gap where an existing community need exists.  The needs for this grant program were established by taking into consideration conditions that limits individuals from achieving their fullest social, economic, or health related potential, with input from participating members of the Dutchess County Coalition of Nonprofits, the Health and Human Services Cabinet, and other community stakeholders.  The needs have evolved since the inception of the grant program and are reviewed annually, with input from the aforementioned stakeholders.
