CFOV Announces Upcoming Grant Programs
The Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley (CFOV) is pleased to announce several competitive grant programs will be open to receive applications starting November 7.
The Community Impact Fund, an opportunity made possible through various unrestricted, field of interest and donor-advised funds of the Foundation, includes a pre-application process. Any 501(c)(3) organization, faith-based organization or government entity (schools, libraries, etc.) serving Hancock, Brooke, Ohio, Marshall, Wetzel or Tyler counties in West Virginia or Belmont or Jefferson counties in Ohio may apply. While not exclusive, areas of priority include substance abuse prevention/treatment, next generation leadership/mentoring, youth recreation/activities and economic development.
