Maximum amount awarded at one time is $625, but smaller grants are available. In order to be considered, all requests must include the following:

1) cover sheet on your organizations Letterhead

3) how much requested from BAC

4) other sources of funding (cash and in-kind) 

5) timeline and who is responsible

6) outcomes/results of success and
