Community Enhancement Fund (CEF) Grants for FY15

For FY15, Metro is continuing the Community Enhancement Fund (CEF) Grant program for Nashville non-profit agencies. The CEF is designed to meet community needs by funding:

  • Services not currently provided by Metro Nashville Government.
  • Services which enhance those already provided by Metro Nashville Government.


FY15 CEF Recipient Grants Management Training is scheduled for Wed., August 13 starting at 9 a.m. (as listed on page 12 of the FY15 CEF Handbook). Even if you’ve received CEF grants in the past, we encourage you to get that date and time on your calendar and/or on the calendar of the person(s) on your staff who will be responsible for administering the grant. Naturally, new recipients are strongly encouraged to attend. We will review subjects such as the contracting process, payment terms, invoicing, reporting requirements, monitoring.

Training will be held at:
Howard Office Building (1st floor)
700 2nd Ave. S.

(additional parking is available behind Lindsley Hall, the white castle-looking building)
