Core Grant Program
What We Fund
Funding through the Genuardi Family Foundation Core Grant Program supports organizations that provide direct services in one or more of the following issue areas:
- Food access and security
- Homelessness prevention and housing
- Job training and placement
Examples of direct services that will be considered for funding include:
- Food access and security: meal delivery, food banks/pantries, and efforts to improve access to healthy and nutritious food for populations and geographic areas with limited access
- Homelessness prevention and housing: shelters, case management, rapid-re-housing, and support that directly prevents homelessness
- Job training and placement: programs that increase vocational skills, enhance job readiness, and facilitate job placement, with a special emphasis on training and opportunities for people with disabilities
The Foundation welcomes both general operating and program-specific grant requests that meet our eligibility requirements.
