Community Impact Grants

Community Impact Grants are distributed to agencies that are implementing new, innovative programs to meet emerging needs in the Greater Fall River community. To be eligible for Community Impact funds, an organization must be a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization providing health and human service programs. Before applying, agencies should note that Community Impact Grants are restricted to new programs or projects and will be funded on a one year only basis.

The funding cycle for all grants begins this year on July 1, 2018, and distribution of the funds will be on a quarterly basis upon receipt and favorable review of quarterly updates.
