Grants now available through the McKean Co. Commissioner-Community Foundation Partnership

Grants to enhance the lives of the residents of McKean County and its surrounding communities are now available through the McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF) and the McKean County Board of Commissioners partnership. The Commissioners will provide funding from the dollars they received through the American Rescue Plan Act.

Grants will be administered through the McKean County Community Foundation. This grant cycle will offer more opportunities for our local nonprofits to support their programs and projects. The grant requests must seek to support projects that will impact McKean County residents by meeting the needs of the community rather than the needs of individuals. Projects can expand or enhance current programs or fund new programs. All programs and projects must have a solid plan for sustainability.

Applications are now available on the Community Foundation website at to any county-wide 501 (c) 3 nonprofits, as well as faith-based organizations that provide services to the public in McKean County and surrounding communities. The grant application deadline is September 15. The maximum grant award for each organization is $10,000. If you have questions, contact the Community Foundation.

The McKean County Community Foundation provides the administrative and investment management services that make it easy for donors to accomplish their charitable wishes, while improving the quality of life in our communities. The Community Foundation of the Northern Alleghenies is the parent company of the Elk County Community Foundation and the McKean County Community Foundation.
