Impact Grants funded through the County Endowment Re-Granting Program have a $5,000 limit per organization. Up to $60,000 of grant funding is available in this cycle. Focus areas include arts, education, human service, culture, environment, heritage, and health.
The County Endowment Re-Granting Program is funded annually by a percentage of the state’s commercial gaming tax revenue. Because the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine is accredited by the National Council of Foundations and qualified by the Iowa Department of Economic Development, we receive these grant dollars and re-grant them for programs, projects and services enhancing the quality of life in Muscatine County.
