Matching Fund Information

The question on leveraged funding has been modified in order to clarify the questions. Please note the title of the section has been modified to state “Matching Funds” to best define the questions. The purpose of the section is to allow applicants to describe matching of funds and is intended for informational purposes only. If your agency uses a portion of your Community Programs funding allocation to match funds from another funding source, please complete this section on the application. Please note, not all agencies use Community Programs funds to match other funding, this section is only required if it applies. 

New Applicants can use the CMC to Apply Online

Agencies and programs that do not currently receive funding from one of the jurisdictions or United  Way and who are interested in applying for FY 2015-16 funding should contact the individual funders directly to determine if new applications are being accepted. To apply online, new applicants must be assigned a CMC user id and password to access the funding application in the CMC. To receive CMC login information, new applicants must go to “New CMC Users” on the website’s top navigation bar and provide the required information to be added to the CMC website. After the agency is added to the CMC, the applicant will receive an email with a user id and password which will provide access to the online application.
