Community Foundation accepting grant applications to help underserved

SYCAMORE – The DeKalb County Community Foundation is now accepting applications for grants from community organizations that provide services to underserved and marginalized people in DeKalb County.

Applications that inspire the community to build leadership skills and empower the underserved population in the county, particularly recent immigrants will be considered for Promise Grants, according to a news release. A portion of the grants is meant to support early childhood literacy through direct outreach services to underserved populations of children, from birth to kindergarten, and their parents.

Promise Grants will distribute about $3,300 among selected nonprofits before the end of the year, the release said.

The deadline for Promise Grant application submissions is Nov. 19. For information, visit dekalbccf.org/promisegrants or email Marc Hooks at m.hooks@dekalbccf.org or call 815-748-5383.
