Responsive Grants

Special Announcement for Grantseekers:
Good news! Improvements have been made to our 2020 Responsive Grants process to shorten the length of time from when you apply to when you are notified. We've also made some other changes designed to make it easier for you to apply. A note of importance: the application process for General Operating Support and Capital Project Support will have an earlier due date of 5:00 p.m. on February 27, 2020.

Grantseeker Information Webinar participation is strongly encouraged, even for experienced Grant applicants. The webinar will share information about all the grant processes of The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and the Valley Community Foundation.
