Monona County Community Partners Foundation Awards Grants

The Monona County Community Partners Foundation (MCCPF) recently awarded grants totaling over $100,000 to nonprofit organizations in support of projects and programs throughout Monona County on April 6.  This brings the total grants awarded to over $1.2 million since the first grants were made in 2006.  Funding for the grant program is a result of County Endowment Fund legislation (HF2302) passed in 2005 which provides that a percentage of state gambling revenues be distributed among all Iowa counties that do not have a gambling entity.
