Alabama RC&D Grants
Each RC&D Grant Project helps Alabama communities grow and prosper.
- Who can benefit from RC&D?
We award grant funding opportunities to 501c3 non-profit organizations and units and sub-units of government for special projects that enhance our human and natural resources to improve the quality of life for local Alabama citizens.
- What types of projects are funded?
We fund projects that fall into two categories: Education Fund Projects and General Fund Projects. An Education Fund Project must have an educational component. All projects without an educational component are considered General Fund Projects.
- Which Council do you contact?
All 67 counties in Alabama belong to one of our nine Councils. Find your local council here. If your project involves three or more Councils, you are eligible for a Statewide grant from the Alabama Association.
- When do you apply for grant funding?
All RC&D projects run on a fiscal year cycle, beginning on October 1. All nine Councils accept grant applications from April 1 to June 30. Applications are reviewed before October 1 to ensure all approved projects may begin at the start of the fiscal year.
- How do you apply for grant funding?
Request an application from your local RC&D Council Office.
