Matching Funds FAQ

How can we receive matching funds through this grant program?

Interested organizations must apply here. This is not a grant program and our process is selective.

Is there a deadline for drawing matching funds?

We will walk you through timelines and deadlines during the application process.

Is there a minimum or maximum match?

There is one million dollars available for allocation across all awardees. There is a $100,000 minimum (new requirement for 2024) per recipient though we have made exceptions. If you are questioning your capacities, contact us!

What can the match be used for?

Our match should be viewed as a co-investment and is a dollar-for-dollar commitment of time, services, and work product. 

My organization is applying for a grant. Can we include CBC Invests as a source of potential funding in our grant application to demonstrate capacity and increase our odds?

We are very open to this but recommend getting in touch with us to discuss the specifics! The opportunity may depend on the guidelines and the grant itself or the grant’s funding authority.
