Grant Project Profile Help Available

Buckeye Hills-Hocking Valley Regional Development District is ready to assist various agencies and nonprofit organization across the region with securing grant funding for projects.
For consideration of funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission, Community Development Block Grants and the Economic Development Administration, applicants should complete a Project Profile.
Buckeye Hills communication director Gwynn Stewart says the simple, self-explanatory project profile form collects basic information about projects, including contact information, project description, type and readiness, regional impact, project partners, funding sources and total project costs. 
Qualifying state and local agencies and governmental entities, local governing boards (such as county councils), and nonprofit organizations (such as schools and organizations that build low-cost housing) may apply for the competitive grants programs. Representatives from these organizations may draw from the expertise and assistance available from Buckeye Hills to navigate the grants process.
Applicants complete the form and submit it to Buckeye Hills.
Based on the project information provided, staff will determine the proper potential funding source (ARC, CDBG, EDA, etc.). Projects must serve residents in one or more of the region's eight counties: Athens, Hocking, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Noble, Perry, and Washington.
While each funding source has specific goals, they generally address the following issues: create/retain private sector jobs; extend or upgrade water or sewer services; provide quality health care; provide job skills training; and/or develop or improve infrastructure for residents.

The project form can be completed electronically. All profiles are due to Buckeye Hills no later than 4 p.m. on March 10, 2014. For answers on questions regarding the project profile process call Melissa Zoller at (740) 376-1027.
