NEW, Limited-Time Funding Opportunity for Spring 2022

Transportation Assistance Micro-Grant Program

Purpose:
To provide targeted and timely fiscal relief to Broome County-based health and human service-focused 501(c)3 organizations whose budgets have been significantly impacted by increased fuel costs.

Criteria:
To apply for a Transportation Assistance Micro-Grant of up to $2,500, organizations must:

  • Be a 501(c)3 organization based in Broome County, New York.
  • Operate a health and/or human service-focused program where transportation is fundamental to service deliver occurring within Broome County (i.e., ambulance companies, meal delivery programs, etc.).
  • Certify that (a) the applying organization doesn’t not have another dedicated source of funding to offset increased transportation costs, and (b) all micro-grant funds will be put toward transportation costs.

Additional Opportunity

For every grant issued, Mirabito has pledged an additional 10 percent in gasoline cards, further extending the fuel assistance to local service organizations.

Please note:

  • Funding is limited, and applicants are encouraged to apply early.
  • Awards will be prioritized based on program impact and financial need.
  • Although the application is shorter, comprehensive responses are required. The organization must still make its case to be considered for funding.
