THRIVE Grant Opportunities from the Fund for York County

The Fund for York County focuses resources on our community’s most pressing issues. Our new focus seeks to provide funding opportunities for programs and collaboratives that transform lives and our community by helping low-income individuals build economic mobility to help them thrive.

Our focus areas include:

  • Career Development
  • Child and Youth Development
  • Health
  • Housing
  • Transportation

Grants are awarded to organizations or collaboratives that support our new strategic direction in creating new programs, expansion of existing programs, capacity building, and planning and research.
