Region 9 will partner with governments and community groups that align with our mission. We will help these groups access funding sources for projects of economic benefit to a community. Our ability to help any group is subject to available capacity and the priorities as listed below. We primarily provide these services to government entities and nonprofit organizations but will consider helping businesses as able. Our services include:

All services are offered on a first come first serve basis.

  1. Do you have a grant opportunity identified?
  2. Does the funding opportunity you are seeking require matching funds? If so, do you have matching funds secured?
  3. Is the project for a local government entity or regional initiative?
  4. Is the project part of your Community Development Action Plan? (CDAP)
  5. Is your government entity or board supporting this project, grant application, and any necessary matching funds?  

If we already committed to assisting another entity with the application, if applicable, and all partners agree, we can explore combining the two applications to be more competitive.

Region 9 also posts grant and funding announcements for individuals, businesses, and organizations on the SWCODA website.
