.Application for Funding.


The Road Map to Prosperity grants have been awarded for 2019-2021. Please check back at a later date for future funding opportunities.

To be considered for Prosperity Tomorrow funding, an organization must first submit a completed Letter of Inquiry (LOI) form no later than 5:00 p.m. on February 1, 2019 through the Agency Portal.

The LOIs will be reviewed and scored by a panel of community volunteers to determine which organizations will be approved to submit a more detailed application for funding consideration. This is a competitive process and submission of an LOI or full application does not guarantee funding.
