Grant applications are now being accepted for the fall grants cycle.  To be eligible to receive a grant, completed applications must be postmarked by September 30th, 2010 and all previous final grant reports must be completed. Charitable organizations, educational institutions, and governmental
agencies which benefit Floyd County citizens and fit the grant guidelines are welcome to apply. 
Applicants must download or obtain new copies of the grant application packages because the format of the application has been updated. Grant program guidelines, policies and grant application forms are available on the Foundation’s website www.horseshoefoundation.org.  Paper copies of the applications and annual reports are available at the Carnegie Center for Art and History, the Floyd County Library, and the Horseshoe Foundation’s 3rd floor Office at the Scribner Place YMCA.
