CFJC is using a new online software. Applicants will be assigned a password when they start the process, which allows them to complete the process in phases should they be interrupted.

Our application-based grant program is intended to meet the diverse needs of the Johnson County community in the following areas:
Community Fund affiliates in the communities of Coralville, Lone Tree, North Liberty, Swisher, Tiffin and University Heights will have opportunities to review and determine grant applications from nonprofit organizations serving their locations.
