The HCCF Board is thrilled to announce that the 2017optimized dscn1851 Grant Cycle, which was open for applications beginning on August 1, 2017, has now closed. The Board is now reviewing applications from many 501(c)(3) organizations.  HCCF has previously awarded over $180,000 in grants and hopes to grant more this year than ever before.  
While still focusing on the more critical needs of North Port residents, the Board has added "education" to the grant criteria criteria in 2017, looking forward to helping needy families break the cycle of education by sending a child to post-secondary school with a full 4-year scholarship.   All funds awarded must benefit North Port residents and be used within one year.  Click "Grants" on the Home page to see the full schedule and criteria for 2017.
