“The Harrison County Community Foundation is excited to offer this mini-grant opportunity for organizations throughout our county,” said Allison Anderson, a committee member with the Harrison County Community Foundation. “We are so eager to see what the organizations in our local communities propose for us to help them serve Harrison citizens. HCCF was created to provide permanent resources to benefit our citizens and communities and this is one way we can make that happen.”
