Community Enrichment Grants


Community Enrichment Grant (CEG)

This Adams County grant provides financial support to nonprofit and publicly supported organizations to operate programs and services that improve the health, well-being, and self-sufficiency of underserved, marginalized, or vulnerable people living in Adams County. The grant must be used to “directly serve” Adams County residents and funding requests shall be based on the actual cost to serve these residents. 

This is a competitive grant; Organizations submit a complete application with all associated documents to be considered for funding. Grant applications are evaluated by the grant advisory committee and this committee makes a recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners on grant awards. The highest grant award provided through this program in the last few years is $60,000; the lowest grant award was $4,200. Please read the application information sheet for more information.
