Local non-profit groups and governmental entities that have not yet applied for a grant from the Butler County Area Foundation Fund have more time to do so.

The Fund Advisory Committee has extended the deadline, originally set at Oct. 2, to Wednesday, Nov. 1. 

Last year, BCAFF invested more than $10,000 in the form of grants back into the community.

Applicants should be prepared to provide details about their project plans, the funds they have raised or need to raise, and plans for completion. All ideas for future-oriented community projects are welcome. Applicants may be asked to schedule an interview. Assistance is available for the online process.

Grant awards will be announced at a later date. The online address for the grant application is http://bit.ly/BCAFF2017grant
