CFJC to hold training for grant process that opens July 1

Jun 05, 2018

The Community Foundation of Johnson County (CFJC) will accept grant applications beginning July 1. With the implementation of a new online system that will make the process easier for applicants, reviewers and Grant Committee members, the foundation has scheduled a training session for those who intend to apply for a grant. The training will be held Thursday, June 28, from 3:30 – 5 p.m. at the Iowa City School District Administrative offices, 1725 N. Dodge Street, Iowa City. Registration for training is not required.

Nonprofit organizations can apply for grants by visiting CFJC’s website at and click on “Apply for a Grant.” Applicants are assigned a password when they start the process, which allows them to complete the process in phases should they be interrupted. Applicants must attach a budget and financial information with the application.

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.

Nonprofit organizations that received a grant from the foundation last year are reminded they must file a report before June 30, 2018, to be considered for another grant. Grant Report Forms are available at and click on “Grant Report.”
