If we submit a proposal and are awarded a grant, how soon can we apply again?

A past recipient of an Impact100 Owensboro $100,000 grant (individual recipient or collaborative partner) cannot apply for the $100,000 grant for the following 3 grant cycles. For example, a recipient of $100,000 in the year 2020 could not apply in 2021, 2022, 0r 2023. They would be eligible to apply for the $100,000 grant again…

Will the grant be paid in a lump sum?

Impact100 Owensboro requires invoices for all money spent as indicated in the grant request. After the invoices are reviewed for accuracy, payments are made at that time. No funds are disbursed in advance.

If a nonprofit is a religious organization can it apply for a grant?

Possibly. Our funding cannot be used to advance faith-based programs (e.g. build a chapel) but can be used by a faith-based organization to address social issues that are non-denominational. Outreach and/or ministry programs of a church must provide documentation of the sponsoring church’s 501c3 and show direct affiliation with the sponsoring 501c3.

Do small or new nonprofits have a chance of winning a grant?

Yes. Grants have been awarded to small, medium, and large-sized nonprofits. Applications are evaluated on the strength of the organization, the strength of the project, the project’s sustainability, and the transformational impact of the project on the community.
