The Board of Directors may approve multi-year grants; however, grants are evaluated at least annually.
Eligible applicants include nonprofit tax-exempt organizations, including churches and units of government, located in the Paso del Norte Region.
Awards are made generally to qualified nonprofit organizations with a tax exempt status of 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or equivalent status, and organized and operated for charitable, educational or religious purposes. Funding is not provided to individuals.
Funding is principally for direct project costs and not for general operating and overhead expenses. A 10% indirect cost (IDC) is allowed on most budgets. The IDC generally is not applicable to pass-through contracts.
Applicants may not communicate about or ‘lobby’ for their proposal under consideration with any Board Member, Committee Member, or PdNHF staff apart from the Program Lead and designated Program Support Staff. If such ‘lobbying’ or inappropriate influencing of the proposal review process is discovered, the applicant organization shall be ineligible for grants from PdNHF for a period of not less than two years.
