Connect With OCF Staff About Your Proposal

Regional OCF program officers will be available for 30-minute meetings (one per organization). At this time, staff are only available to meet with spring cycle applicants who are eligible for general operating support. Review the Program Guidelines document for eligibility requirements and Community Grants’ definitions of “small rural”, “culturally specific” and “organization specific to populations facing bias and/or discrimination” before scheduling.

Applicants for the fall cycle will have the opportunity to meet with program officers about their funding requests in June and July. We ask that you wait until then to schedule an applicant meeting if you are not eligible for general operating support this cycle and/or you are interested in funding for program enhancement, capacity building, and small capital projects.
