Emergency Grant Guidelines

A Qualified Organization may make application for emergency funding should it experience an unforeseen external force that occurs outside the mini-grant funding cycle and does not qualify as a Capital/Special Projects Grant.  An application must demonstrate:

  • that the forces causing the monetary urgency were beyond both the reasonable foresight and the control of the organization;
  • that there is a significant and critical localized, immediate need; and
  • not funding the application would be a detriment to the children of Tioga County.

All applications shall be submitted electronically through this website.  All applications must include a “Project Budget” outlining all funding sources along with a detailed list of anticipated expenditures.

The following attachments must be uploaded with the submitted application:

  • IRS 501 (c)(3) Tax-Exempt letter if applicable
  • Current balance sheet for the organization, not more than 90 days old
  • Any estimates, invoices or quotes
  • Any additional information/narratives which will help FHF in its review of your application

Applicants will be required to file with FHF a final report providing an accounting of monies received and expended on the project.


Please email FHF at info@hookerfoundation.org if you have any questions or concerns.
