County Details, Deadlines, Guidelines, and Communications
Each county has developed county-specific application guidelines. These guidelines are revised every year, so it is critical that you revisit them, every year, before filling out an application even if you applied in the county in the last grant cycle.
An SCFD Program Officer is assigned to each County and is listed with each set of guidelines below. Please reach out to them directly if you have any questions.
Deadline: March 1, 2023 @ 4:00 PM
Any organization applying in more than one county must submit to SCFD by this date.
