In addition to the our various projects, the JLGC also assists the community throughout the year in other ways when there is a demonstrated need. The Community Assistance Grant Program provides monies to charitable organizations based on application and review. A volunteer component is not required.

The funds must be used in the West St. Tammany area and all funds must benefit the community at large.
The following will not be considered for funding: religious instruction or teaching, political activities, fundraising expenses, contributions to capital drives or salary/overhead expenses. For-profit organizations will not be considered.
The current application period begins in August 1 of each year and extends through March 23 of the following year. The deadline to apply is March 23. Grants will be awarded in May. Organizations must submit a new grant application each year to be considered.
