Agency Partner Grant Program

The Agency Partner Grant (APG) Program is a grant program for Dutchess County non-profit organizations with a 501(c)(3) designation. Funding is awarded to organizations on a competitive basis based on their ability to demonstrate they can fulfill an unmet community need.

Traditional APG Program 
Funding is awarded on a biennial basis unless additional funds become available. Therefore, programs funded in even years, will be renewed in odd years if meeting the program objectives.

APG: Infrastructure Program  
Funding is used to support 501(c)(3) nonprofit infrastructure initiatives.
