Apply for A Grant

Our 20 years of funding and supporting agencies that serve women and girls in Northeast Florida have taught us to first research and listen, then act and partner. The past year has been life-changing for all of us. In light of unprecedented challenges, and insights from our valued nonprofit partners, WGA is shifting its grant-making process for 2022, to focus on resource funding and capacity-building for current and past WGA grantees.


Organizations that have received a WGA grant in support of women and girls between 2002 and 2021 may apply for a one-year grant, for up to $50,000, by completing the online application.

Agencies that have not been funded by WGA previously are ineligible for this grants cycle. Please check back in Fall 2022 for information regarding 2023 grants.

The WGA grant application is now open to eligible organizations. If you have been invited to apply, please apply online using the button below. All applications must be submitted online no later than January 10, 2022 at 5:00 PM EST.

Should you have questions, contact Kacie Smyth, WGA Director. at 904.356.4483 or


Grantmaking Goals & Programs

Our goal for this cycle will be to award grants that are not earmarked for specific programs or projects, but that fund partner grantees' Critical Core Mission. This Critical Core Mission initiative, aimed at funding specific pandemic-related challenges in supporting women and girls in Northeast Florida, includes funding for:

  • Replacement, restoration, and/or capacity recovery of basic operational needs which may include upgrading facility operational capabilities; re-hiring of furloughed staff; offering health insurance or key benefits to attract and retain staff; and other capacity-building, restorative operational needs.
  • Implementation of means to improve efficiencies for delivering services, such as expenditures for technology (e.g., hardware, software, WiFi access, tablets, subscription services, or other); augmenting food pantries' capabilities or nutritional programs; and/or other improvement considerations.
  • Delivery of initiatives specific to client recovery from the pandemic, which could include childcare and transportation to allow women to return to work and/or school; access to mental health services for staff and clients; and the like.
