Grants available to improve Arkansas

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT)- Three grant opportunities are available from the Arkansas Community Foundation. These grants will work to create positive change in Arkansas.

The ARCF is offering grants for statewide and local projects and introduces a new grant program that will provide funding specifically for initiatives that will improve the quality of life in the Arkansas Delta.

"Through our Giving Tree Endowments, we're able to offer grants not only to programs that have the potential to impact the entire state, but also to projects that focus on a specific local need." ARCF President and CEO Heather Larkin says.

The grants include the Craighead County Giving Tree grant, the Statewide Giving Tree grant and the Arkansas Delta Endowment for Building Community Grant. Applications must be postmarked by February 15th and recipients of the grants will be announced no later than April 30th.

Detailed submission guidelines, applications and contact information for all three grants are available at www.arcf.org.
