Ford Fund is investing $1 million in West Tennessee to help local non-profits and municipalities build capacity and infrastructure to better serve the community’s needs for generations to come.

The grants are designed to enable capital improvements in the region, including physical infrastructure such as playgrounds and construction of new or renovated spaces like community centers. The awarded grants will range between $25,000 - $100,000.   

United Way of West Tennessee will serve as a fiscal sponsor for municipalities and organizations that are not tax-exempt. Those who do not have a 501c3 tax status should email Give@UnitedWay.TN.org and include “Ford Fund Capital Grant” in the subject line when sending an email about applying to the Capital Grant Program through United Way of West Tennessee.   

Applications are due Friday, Feb. 3, and applicants will be notified of the results by early April. Apply here.
