Since 2006, BHACF has distributed more than
$6 million to hundreds of organizations that improve
life in our region. We are now launching our first
competitive grant cycle. Applicants must be a
501(c)(3) public charity which strives to positively
affect one more more of the following issues:
quality of life, beautification, economic
development, education, and human and social need.
With these grants, we hope to address and raise the
level of awareness concerning local needs.
