SCHIP announced that Tuesday, Oct. 15, is their fall deadline for grant applications.
Applicant requirements require that the organization be a 501c(3) or submit the application through such an organization, funds may not be applied to annual operating budgets or permanent staffing and there be one application per organization per calendar year.
Projects must serve residents of Shelburne, Charlotte or Hinesburg.
Since SCHIP began making grants, many nonprofits have used their awarded funds to continue their mission to improve the lives of our neighbors and strengthen local communities.
Grants range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars and may not exceed $3,000 per request. Only one grant can be received within a year by any one entity. After Oct. 15, the next grant deadline is April 15.
