Thank you for your interest in the Michigan City Community Enrichment Corporation’s Grant Funding Cycle. The Corporation was organized as a public benefit corporation to serve organizations that qualify as Section 501(c)(3) under the Internal Revenue Service and benefit the people of the Michigan City Area School District.
The MCCEC 2022-2023 online grant applications will be available Monday, September 20th, 2021 at 9:00 am. The deadline for submitting the grants is Tuesday, November 30th, at 11:59pm CST. No applications will be accepted after that time. The current grant awards were awarded in March of this year. Click here for a list of the awarded grants for 2021. In that grant cycle we awarded 40 grants. Twenty of the grants were for $10,000.00 or less. We received applications totaling $1.128 million dollars and we award approximately $750,000 every year.
Your Grant Application should be “all-inclusive”, as presentations will not be permitted. However, the Board may request further information from you after a review of the Grant Applications. If your organization is applying for more than one grant, you will need to use a different email address and password for each grant application. No changes can be made once the application is submitted.
The grant application requires supporting files. These items include a Financial Statement for the current year and the previous year, including the current year IRS Determination Letter showing your 501(c)(3) Status. There are several other documents needed as listed in the Grant Application. New information this year is requiring the percentage or actual dollars anticipated to be spent during each quarter. We will disburse those funds at the start of the respective quarter. In other words, the entire amount of the Grant Funds will not be paid at the start of the grant cycle. During the application process you may print your application at any time. This may be helpful for proofreading it before the application is submitted. After submitting your grant application, you will be able to read and print it.
The Michigan City Community Enrichment Corporation presented a Grant Writing Workshop on Tuesday, September 28th, 2021.by Zoom. A link to the workshop is available on the Michigan City Community Enrichment Corporation Board page. You can watch the workshop if you were unable to attend the live presentation.
