2022-Spring-grant-cycle-4x6-new-300x200.jpgThe Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation works to improve the quality of life for all people in Emmet County. As a place-based grantmaker, we are committed to making the community stronger including through our twice-per-year grant cycle. Beginning January 19, 2022, we invite eligible nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and municipalities to apply to the Spring 2022 grant cycle.

The application process begins with an email inquiry to [email protected]. From here, the our grant team of Kassia Perpich and Sarah Ford, both Directors of Community Philanthropy, will contact prospective applicants to learn more about their proposed projects and answer questions about the foundation’s grantmaking process. Eligible organizations will then be invited to submit a grant application.

We encourage interested organizations to reach out as early as possible. This allows ample time for prospective applicants to schedule a conversation with our staff. Inquiries will be accepted through Tuesday, February 22, 2022Grant applications are due Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

Application review will take place following the grant deadline and will engage advisory committees made up of community members. Youth- and family-focused applications will be reviewed by the foundation’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), made up of 20 area teens. The YAC will prioritize proposals that address issues identified in the Youth Needs Assessment (shown below), with the highest priority on youth mental health. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions in late April 2022.
