The Junior League of Hampton Roads, Inc. (JLHR) is not currently accepting applications for the JLHR 2018 Community Assistance Grant.   Please stay tuned for more information on applications and deadlines.

Grant funds, with a maximum non-renewable award of $4000, are available to nonprofit organizations operating in the JLHR’s service area.  Eligible organizations address the well-being of women and/or children in the communities of Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, Poquoson, James City County, York County, Gloucester, Smithfield, and/or Isle of Wight. Determination of award(s) will be based upon a competitive evaluation of all eligible applications. A total of no more than $4000 will be awarded to the grant recipient(s).

Successful applicants are required to provide a 6-month update and final report documenting how the grant funds were used. Funds not used within 12 months of the award date must be returned to the JLHR. Failure to comply with reporting and fund use requirements may jeopardize the organization’s ability to receive JLHR grant funding in the future.

JLHR Community Opportunity Grant funds may not be used to support the following activities: ongoing operative expenses (including administrative costs), equipment not related to the requested funding, annual requests (such as scholarships, religious events and yearly membership drives), political campaigns or parties, and/or loans or grants to individuals.

Additionally, please note that organizations may not receive JLHR grant funds for more than two consecutive years. Organizations currently benefiting from JLHR community outreach and volunteer or partnership agreements are ineligible to apply.

The successful applicant(s) will be announced at the Junior League of Hampton Roads’ annual May Dinner.
