Agency Eligibility

CAPSAW was established in 2009 to provide grant funding and technical support to programs offering services designed to build a financial security framework for our community members.  The CAPSAW Mission and Vision Statements were created during our most recent Strategic Planning process.  Each grant application or request for support is reviewed with those in mind.

Eligibility criteria for each specific grant opportunity is described on those pages found on this site.  Those include:
