The group is accepting applications through Jan. 17, 2014. Social service agencies or groups serving the health, education and welfare needs of residents in the area are invited to apply. Funding is determined based on a number of factors including community needs, distribution of existing services, impact on the community, population served, quality of administration/service, collaboration and financial condition.
“Each year a network of volunteers comprised of community volunteers & board members meet with applicants during the months of February and March to evaluate services, discuss key issues and to assure the accountability of all agencies we support,” said Melinda Burge, executive director of the Fund.
Co-Chairs for the 2014 evaluations are Betsy Goodell and Cathy Needham.
