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.
The next competitive APG Request for Applications (RFA) will begin in late August 2021 with funds awarded effective January 2022.
Applications are now being accepted for the Learn, Play, Create one-time grant opportunity. To address the negative economic impact of the COVID-19 public health emergency on youth-serving organizations, Dutchess County is investing in youth-serving libraries and other youth-serving organizations that promote learning, art enrichment, and sports activities. The intent of the grant funding is to enhance and empower opportunities for children to learn, play, and create, while filling an educational, financial, social, and/or emotional void as a result of the quarantine and stay-at-home orders necessitated by COVID-19.
Applications must be submitted through the Dutchess County Grant Portal. Please refer to the Learn, Play, Create Application Instructions & Guidance (.pdf) for more information, as well as a list of eligible applicants and expenses.
Applications for the 2022 APG program, if funds are made available, will be released in August/September 2021 and will be due in October 2021. The below application materials are here for information purposes only.
