The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation this week will begin accepting applications for its annual Program and Planning Grants, with a total of $500,000 available.
The grants, given annually, provide up to $75,000 for organizations to spend on new or existing projects related to one or more of the foundation’s four priority areas: access to care, childhood wellness, mental health and senior services. Unrestricted general operations are not eligible for funding in this grant cycle.
“Funding projects and programs that are in line with our four priority areas is always exciting for us,” PATH President Christy Connolly said. “And we look forward to learning how local organizations are planning to help meet the needs of our community.”
Eligible applicants include 501(c)3 non-profits, religious institutions requesting funding for non-religious projects and local government entities in Fauquier, Rappahannock and northern Culpeper counties.
The deadline for applications 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14. Award recipients will be notified in May, and successful grantees must use their funding within one year of the date of award. Applicants must also reflect the mission and values of the PATH Foundation.
