2019 Grantmaking Strategy

This year, grantmaking in our core program areas will remain steady across our 10-county region. We also plan to explore several issues that have surfaced from conversations with grantees and time in the field. These opportunities focus on regional issues that align with our core grantmaking portfolio and may be time bound and/or exploratory in nature.

Below please find our 2019 grants budget which takes into consideration our required minimum distribution and multi-year grant commitments.
