Over $400,000 is available this fall for two separate grant opportunities through the Princeton Area Community Foundation (PACF). Proposals for program funding that serves girls and the women who raise them and programs that support Mercer County and its neighboring communities are due in September.
The Fund for Women and Girls seeks grant proposals from programs with proven competence in working with girls to build character and self-esteem, hone special talents, train for leadership, respect their bodies, stay in school, and be proud of who they are, and what they can do. The deadline for proposals is Friday, September 29, 2006.
PACF’s Greater Mercer Grants are available for programs that address the needs of low-income individuals and families, support community organizing in low-income neighborhoods, and address concerns and opportunities within and across municipalities with the greatest impact within Mercer County. The next deadline for proposals to the Greater Mercer Grants Program is September 15.
For more information on how to apply for the grants, contact PACF at 609-219-1800 or online at www.pacf.org.
