Early Child Development

Early Child Development Grants support extraordinary early education opportunities for children from birth to age four.  We consider efforts that support quality improvement in the childcare sector, provide access to early screening and intervention services, engage parents early in their child’s development and generally prepare children for a high degree of wellness and educational readiness before they enter school.


Environmental Impact Grants support conservation and stewardship of the region’s natural resources including activities like monitoring and cleaning waterways, community beautification and clean-up, community education and volunteer engagement around environmental stewardship.


AHR’s Civic & Community Leadership Grant supports efforts to educate and engage people in civic life and those that strengthen leadership within and across the nonprofit community.

Art Enrichment for Children

The purpose of this grant is to provide funds for public school music, art, and drama programs located in Carroll, Haralson, and Heard counties, elementary through high school. This grant cycles opens in March and closes in April.
