JP Morgan Chase is accepting applications for its Arizona Community Builders program, which funds efforts aimed at improving communities or helping individuals and families who face special challenges achieve a better quality of life.
Nonprofit organizations may apply for either general operating support (GOS) or project support (PS) grants. The funding can be used to create self-sustaining low and moderate-income (LMI) communities by developing their physical, economic, and social infrastructure. This can include improvements in the areas of housing, hunger, human services, and economic development.
Support programs or projects in the following areas will also be considered: development and/or management of permanent housing, rental or ownership that is affordable to LMI families and individuals; creation or management of special-needs or emergency housing or shelters; hunger-alleviation programs, such as food banks, food pantries and soup kitchens; workforce development and employment training; commercial and industrial redevelopment; micro-enterprise and small business assistance organizations; childcare services, including family childcare networks, the creation of new center-based programs and policy advocacy; and domestic-violence prevention and protection programs.
The deadline for applications is Sept. 30. Complete guidelines are available on the JP Morgan Chase website.
