Community Enrichment Venture Grant

The Community Enrichment and Venture Grant (CEVG) program began in 1967 to promote the improvement of human services through innovative programs. The name was changed to the Kathleen and Joseph M. Bryan Community Enrichment and Venture Grant Program due to the Bryans' generous support through the years.

These grants (up to $15,000) are awarded as:

  1. seed money which provides short term support for start up, development and stabilization of new and innovative programs;
  2. system building grants that strengthen the capacity of existing agencies to impact the human service delivery system;
  3. support to redirect agencies to more effectively address areas of need.
