The Board of Directors has occasionally awarded funds for “major grants” which have a long-term economic or quality of life impact on the Floyd County community. The first such grant was in 2002 -- a $20,000,000 commitment over 20 years -- to the Scribner Place YMCA & Aquatic Center. That has been the signature and largest grant awarded.
A major grant is defined by the Board as one which:
- has a larger impact on the Floyd County community than grants submitted in annual spring and fall cycles;
- exceeds the normal $25,000 limit; and
- is not limited to the annual grant cycle time line.
