Eligible projects must serve town of Essex residents through community services, beautification, historic preservation, culture, the arts, education, or programs for youth and senior citizens. The deadline to apply is May 30.
The Essex Community Fund (ECF) gives strong preference to capacity-building grants or modest one-time capital projects. It does not award grants for ongoing operating expenses. ECF grants range from $250 to $2,000; the maximum a potential grantee can request is $5,000.
After reviewing applications, the Essex Community Fund anticipates making grant recommendations in June with funding as early as July. Applications must be submitted online through Adirondack Foundation’s Online Grants Manager at adirondackfoundation.org/online-grants-manager.
