The Bright ideas Community Enrichment Fund will accept grant applications for its 31st cycle from September 15th through October 15th, 2021. Bright Ideas grants are competitive, single-year awards that range from $2,500 to $30,000, with priority given to programs and projects that will positively impact area residents.
