Help For Non-Profits
It's a tough situation, the economy takes a dip, budgets are cut and funds for non-profits are among the first to go.
But demand for the type of services non-profits provide tend to rise as economies fall.
Money is increasingly hard to come by and when organizations find it, there's typically a lot of people who want their slice of the budget pie.
In Gainesville, city leaders told non-profits about some relief.
The city's housing and community development division will get around 2 point 4 million dollars to distribute to public service agencies in our area.
For some non-profits a few thousand dollars could be the difference between staying open and closing down shop.
Last year the city awarded 26 agencies funding, there is no limit to the number of different non-profits who can qualify for a grant, but each application is reviewed by a board to ensure it meets federal guidelines.
Applications are due March 2nd and funding will be awarded in October.
