Grant Application Submission

FAQ’s

Who’s eligible?

All applicant organizations must be Missouri-based.  Additionally, qualifying organizations and projects must meet one of the following criteria: non-profit status, civic-organization, educational organization, or cultural organization.

How often can I apply?

Applications are not limited.  However, a qualifying organization can only receive one award per MHC fiscal year (Nov. 1st – Oct. 31st), and may only be awarded funds in two consecutive years.  If a qualifying organization receives two consecutive annual awards, no application may be considered in the next fiscal year.

Do award limitations apply to both types of grants?

Yes.  A qualifying applicant may only be awarded funds once per annum between both grant types, mini and major.

Who is the best MHC contact for the grants program?

Questions about the grant program should be directed to Clarice Britton, Director of Operations.
