Last call for Commissioners/MCCF grant applicants with February 21 deadline

The deadline is February 21 for local nonprofits and faith-based organizations to submit a grant application for a portion of the $250,000 in funding available from the McKean County Commissioners-McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF) partnership. With the deadline coming soon, qualified applicants are encouraged to take this opportunity to obtain grant funding to enhance an existing program or to help start a new program that serves the residents of McKean County.

Nonprofit agencies include any 501 (c) 3 nonprofits that serve the residents of the county and faith-based organizations that provide community services. Grant requests must seek to support projects or programs that will impact McKean County residents by meeting the needs of the community rather than the needs of individuals. All programs and projects should have a plan for sustainability. The $250,000 available for distribution represents a portion of McKean County’s funds from the American Rescue Plan Act.

MCCF will once again administer and distribute the grants for the 2024 granting cycle. Applications are now available on their website at under Grants/Open Grants. The grant application deadline is February 21, 2024. The maximum grant award for each organization is $10,000.

An informational meeting was held on January 16 for any potential applicants. Anyone who needs more information can view the You Tube video recording of that meeting at this link: If you have any questions, contact the Community Foundation.

The Community Foundation of the Northern Alleghenies is the parent company of the McKean County Community Foundation and the Elk County Community Foundation. For more information, please contact the Community Foundation at 844-238-2289.
