2021 Community Investment Fund Grant Opportunity ~ Deadline is SEPTEMBER 30, 2021 BY 5:00 PM

Good Afternoon:

We trust that you have had a good summer and that you are practicing safety as we continue to experience this pandemic.

The Fund for Southern Communities has again this year partnered with the Annie E. Casey Foundation to support the Atlanta Civic Site’s grants initiative for the NPU-V.   Our role is different from previous years in that we will work more directly with applicants throughout the entire grants process.

We are pleased to share the attached application for the Annie E. Casey Foundation Atlanta Civic Site’s 2021 Community Investment Fund’s grants cycle.  We ask that you take some time to review the guidelines/application in its entirety for updated focus. submissions procedures and other important information/dates.  This year’s application has been modified to allow for funding activities taking place to address COVID-19 crises in our NPU-V neighborhoods.  The deadline for submitting the complete application is 5:00 pm, September 30, 2021.

We will host a virtual grant-writing training on Thursday, September 9th at 6:00 pm.  The link to access the meeting is:  https://aecf.webex.com/aecf/j.php?MTID=mf145834ccb183ff44307361c159a0a38;
