General Fund grants up to $3,000 will be awarded to grassroots organizations in the Appalachian counties of KY, TN, VA, and WV that are addressing the underlying causes of poverty and oppression in the region. The grant is to be used within one calendar year of receipt. A report on how grant funds were used is required at the end of that year.

The Appalachian Community Fund (ACF) supports grassroots organizations working to overcome the underlying causes of poverty and injustice in Central Appalachia (East Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, Southwest Virginia, and West Virginia). ACF funds communities with little or no access to other financial resources and grassroots groups which are often too small, too new, or working on issues that are too controversial for traditional funding sources.
