2019 Grants Program Is Now Open!
Bayou Community Foundation is now accepting initial grant requests through February 25, 2019 as part of Phase 1 of its 2019 Competitive Grants Program. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, enhanced funding is provided in this year’s grants program for mental health services and programs as part of BCF’s comprehensive grants program. Click on the documents below for more information on the 2019 grants program and instructions for applying, as well as the 2019 Grant Request Form.
Since 2013, BCF has awarded grants to qualified nonprofits in Lafourche Parish, Terrebonne Parish and Grand Isle as part of the Foundation’s Annual Competitive Grants Program.
The program seeks to fund human services, education, workforce development and coastal preservation programs meeting critical unmet needs in our region, many of which have been identified in the 2013 Community Needs Assessment Conducted by BCF.
Traditionally, the BCF competitive grants program opens in early January with a call for initial, one-page grant requests from qualified nonprofits working in our Bayou Region. A BCF grants committee reviews the initial requests and then selects a number of these requests for a second, more extensive grant application process. Final grant awards are traditionally announced in June, and the grant funding year is July 1 – June 30.
