Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) is proud to announce four grant awards totaling over $85,000 in support of local nonprofit organizations. The grants aim to fund a wide variety of projects related to topics such as basic needs, substance abuse prevention, and historic preservation.

  • St. Vincent dePaul, as part of the St. Joseph Conference, received a grant of $44,000. The funds will provide essential needs for the residents of Harrison County, including food, furnishings, and financial assistance.
  • The Harrison County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition was awarded $36,500. The funds will support Harrison County women who require a stay at the Genesis House, a residential facility for women struggling with substance abuse. The grant funding will help ensure those in need have access to safe and supportive environments.
  • Harrison County Repair Affair was awarded $5,000 to support their annual fall event, which provides free home repair assistance to Harrison County residents in need.
  • The Battle of Corydon Memorial Park Committee, Inc. was awarded $2,000 in support of their Living History Annual Event. This event is a popular attraction for residents and visitors alike, and the grant will ensure it continues to thrive.
