This proposal writing workshop is provided by Brushy Fork Institute at Berea College to assist communities with the application process for Flex-E-Grant funding. In addition to receiving information and resources regarding the application process, participants will participate in a Q&A session with Brushy Fork Institute staff.
Brushy Fork Institute of Berea College administers a portion of Kentucky's Flex-E-Grant funds in partnership with the Kentucky Department for Local Government and the Appalachian Regional Commission.
More info about the Flex-E-Grant Program:
The Flex-E-Grant Program, designed by the Appalachian Regional Commission, provides small investments in short-term projects that build community capacity to mobilize local resources, gain leadership experience, and strengthen community institutions and networks.
Grants are subject to approval for up to $8,000, require a 20 percent match of total project costs, and are to be completed within a 6-month timeline. Flex-E-Grant funds are made available on a reimbursement basis only.
The FEG program was generated from the ARC’s initiative to enhance assistance to distressed counties, and each approved project must demonstrate beneficiaries in a distressed county.
All Kentucky counties designated as distressed for fiscal year 2013 are eligible to apply. Competitive grants are made available for non-profit entities or units of government who are interested in developing projects that build community capacity.
The next cycle of funding will be awarded by July 1, 2014. The deadline for applications is May 15, 2014.
