Each year the Community Foundation awards grants for charitable purposes through a competitive grantmaking process. Applications for competitive grants must align with the strategic priorities of the CFGF Board of Trustees. The funding priority areas in 2019 are literacy, Flint neighborhoods, and access to healthy food.
