ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - The Alachua County Board of County Commissioners is seeking applications from 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations for the Community Agency Partnership Program (CAPP) funding program.  Agencies must have a physical location in Alachua County and have current 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.
There are 2 categories of funding.  One category is called "Poverty Reduction" and is for programs that serve to reduce poverty among Alachua County residents.
The other category is called the "Underserved" category.  Programs in this category must introduce or educate underserved residents of Alachua County in the arts, culture, history or environment.  Underserved persons are those who have limited access due to geography, economics, disability or other conditions.
Applicants may apply for funding for a maximum of 2 programs.  The maximum amount that can be requested per program is $75,000.  Applicants may not apply in both categories for the same program, but they may apply for funding in one category for one program and the other category for a second program.
The deadline for submitting applications is 2 p.m., Wednesday, June 25, 2008.  No applications past 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 25, 2008 will be accepted.  Applications are time-stamped upon submission.  Applicants are encouraged to allow time for limited downtown parking.  There will be no exceptions.
