Community Grants


Painesville & Greater Lake County

At the heart of Painesville Community Improvement Corporation’s (PCIC) dedication to community upliftment lies a transformative initiative – the Community Grants Program. PCIC recognizes that fostering positive change begins at the grassroots, and the Community Grants Program stands as a testament to the organization’s commitment to nurturing local potential and empowering initiatives that propel Painesville forward.

We have contributed up to $300,000 to our great communities and aim to do more by every year.
