The RevComm Foundation supports partner organizations through its Community Empowerment Grant Program, which provides general operating grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. The # of selected agencies for each application period will depend on level of interest and funding availability. In addition to financial assistance, all grantees will have access to pro-bono consulting support.
Grants are typically awarded for a 6-month period. Agencies invited to submit a full proposal but not selected for funding are encouraged to apply during the following application period. Awarded agencies must wait one-year from their award period to re-apply for funding if they still meet the revenue and years in business requirements.
