Grant deadlines extended to August 16

The deadlines for applications for both the Manhattan Community Award Program (MCAP) and the Manhattan Counts 2020 Census initiative have been extended to August 16.

The MCAP provides funding awards of up to $3,500 to nonprofit organizations and public schools. Each award is contracted through one of four city agencies selected by the applicant: Dept. for the Aging, Dept. of Correction, Dept. of Education, and the Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene. Proposals must relate to the selected agency’s overall mission and goals.

Manhattan Counts is designed to spur creative solutions to reach historically under-counted communities in the borough. We’ve allocated $50,000 to community-based organizations that propose innovative, results-oriented ideas to count these groups.

Don’t delay, get your applications in by Friday, August 16! Learn more at
