The Center for Rural Development and Brushy Fork Institute of Berea College are accepting grant proposals for the 2017 KY-Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) Flex-E-Grant program.
The Flex-E-Grant (FEG) program provides small investments in short-term projects that build community capacity to mobilize local resources, gain leadership experience, and strengthen community institutions and networking opportunities.
Grants are subject to approval for up to $10,000, require a 20 percent match of the total project cost, and are to be completed within a six-month time frame.
Competitive grants are available for nonprofit entities or units of government in 40 Southern and Eastern Kentucky ARC-distressed counties interested in implementing projects that build community capacity.
