The Ashland County Community Foundation makes it easy for you to apply for grants online. Please read the instructions below before beginning an application. All ACCF grant applications should be made online unless otherwise noted.
Step 1: Review eligibility, guidelines and deadlines
Step 2: Create an account
Step 3: Select the grant program to which you’re applying and complete the online grant application
Feel free to reach out to ACCF staff with questions or for help at any time during the grants process.
Step 4: ACCF will review your application
Your grant application is reviewed first by program staff. ACCF staff will notify you via email if additional information or clarification is needed. Your completed application is then reviewed by an appropriate grants committee.
Step 5: ACCF may request an applicant interview
Some grantmaking programs require or request an interview with the grants committee following its initial review of your application. You will be notified by email should an interview be requested.
Step 6: Final grant decisions are made
The committee’s recommendations for funding are ratified or approved by the Ashland County Community Foundation’s Board of Trustees. You will be notified by email if your organization received full or partial funding, or in some cases, if funding has been denied. Decisions are typically made within 6-8 weeks after the application deadline.
