Please note that the Youth Council's funding priorities have changed due to the results of their most recent Needs Assessment Survey which was completed in December 2016. 

NonProfit Portal:

All applications must be submitted through AAACF's NonProfit Portal, our online grant application system. If your organization has not registered and received login credentials, you must first complete the registration process. Questions about the NonProfit Portal should be directed to Katie Van Dusen or Maryellen Ferro. Due to the time it takes to receive login credentials, all organizations must register prior to March 22, 2017.
