Richland County is accepting applications for a grant program aimed at increasing community access to public services.
The county’s Office of Community Development awards public service grants each year to agencies to support projects benefiting low- to-moderate income residents. This year, the county plans to allocate $224,275 for the grants, which are financed with Community Development Block Grant funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to a statement from Richland County.
The award amount and availability must be approved by County Council.
Applicants must be a 501(c) 3 or 4 nonprofit organization, and the proposed program must primarily serve those whose household incomes are at or below 80% of the area median income.
Applications can apply online via ZoomGrants. The deadline is Aug. 7.
