    ​CAPP RFA #22-198 IS CLOSED.

    Thank you for your interest in Alachua County's Community Agency Partnership Program (CAPP).

    The Alachua County Commission is seeking proposals from non-profit 501(c)(3) agencies with a physical address in Alachua County. CAPP is designed to leverage the expertise, resources, and services provided by our local non-profit 501c3 organizations to benefit Alachua County citizens living in poverty. Non-profit agencies must have a current IRS 501(c)(3) designation by the time of application. Other requirements are listed in the RFA document under the Grant Resource Information tab in ZoomGrants.

    Proposals for delivery of poverty reduction services in the categories of (1) Safe, Affordable Housing, (2) Quality Child Care and Education, (3) Adequate Food, (4) Reliable Transportation, (5) Quality Healthcare, (6) Reliable Technology, and (7) Financial Education and Stability are desired.

    Applications for FY22-24 CAPP funding will be accepted beginning Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at 9:00 am.  

    View the full proposal criteria by clicking here.​


    All FY 22-24 Community Agency Partnership Program (CAPP) applications must be completed and submitted electronically via Zoom Grants by 4:59 pm on May 4, 2021.

    No late proposals will be accepted. Proposals that do not meet the grant criteria will be rejected. Application rules and instructions, including the complete Request for Applications (RFA) document, are available on the site and interested vendors are encouraged to read all related documents prior to beginning an application.

    The CAPP grant is a reimbursement grant, requiring grantees to expend their own funds and request reimbursement. The grant period is from October 1, 2021, through September 30, 2024, subject to annual appropriation by the Alachua County Commission.

    An optional information session will be held for interested agencies. The session will cover the application process, using the application site, and tips for a successful proposal.
