DuPage County to Host Human Services Grants Informational Meetings in January

DuPage County will host two informational meetings in January for local nonprofit organizations interested in applying for a grant through the Human Services Grant Fund (HSGF).

The meetings will be held at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 4 and 2 p.m. Jan. 9 in Room 3-500B of the DuPage County JTK Administration Building, 421 N. County Farm Road in Wheaton. Organizations must send a representative to one of the two mandatory meetings in order to apply for the grant.

DuPage County created the Human Services Grant Fund to assist organizations that serve County residents in need. This year, the fund will distribute $1 million to grant recipients.

The grants are available to organizations that help families achieve independence, ensure the protection of children and other vulnerable residents and maximize prevention opportunities to strengthen families’ well-being and stability. In the previous grant year, more than 88,760 people received assistance. The average grant award in 2017 was $16,700.

The Human Services Grant Fund application is now a web-based program. For access to the portal, attendance at one of the mandatory meetings is required. 

For more information, please contact Barbara Temborius, Community Development Specialist, at barbara.temborius@dupageco.org or by phone at (630) 407-6603 or through the general email address at communitydev@dupageco.org.

Information regarding eligibility guidelines and selection criteria along with the grant application will be made available at the informational meetings.
