FAQ’s

Who is eligible to apply for Program Operations grants? Grant investments will support health and human service programs in four priority areas:  Aging, Housing & Homelessness, Safety-Net Health & Nutrition, and Cradle to Career – including both Early Childhood & School-Age Youth. Eligible applicants include the following tax-exempt entities: 501(c)(3)s, programs applying via a fiscal agent, governmental entities, school district, and other educational institutions.

Are public sector entities eligible to apply? While the Washtenaw Coordinated Funders are primarily interested in funding the nonprofit sector to meet the community-level outcomes in each of the funding priority areas, there are limited circumstances in which local public sector entities are critical providers of, collaborators in, or fiduciaries for the delivery of health and human services programming that are essential to the furtherance of community-level outcomes achievement.

In general, public sector entities are encouraged to collaborate with nonprofit providers in their applications for capacity building or program operations funding – as either a fiduciary/fiscal agent or as a collaborative applicant. In cases where a public sector provider is the only provider of the type of service delivery for which an application is submitted, the Washtenaw Coordinated Funders will consider applications for program operations funding on a case-by-case basis.
