The Niagara Area Foundation, a division of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, said Monday that it is accepting grant applications from nonprofit organizations. The foundation is making about $55,000 available. Applications are due Oct. 15 and are available at www.cfgb.org.

The foundation seeks to support projects related to the health, human services, arts, civic needs, community development, education and environmental needs of Niagara County. Preference is given to programs that affect youth development and show collaboration with other organizations.

The foundation’s most recent grants were awarded to Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Niagara County, People and Possibilities and the Old Fort Niagara Association.
