In 2016, the City of Orlando partnered with the Central Florida Foundation (CFF) to administer almost $3 million of Community Investment Program grants annually to Central Florida nonprofits that provide critical human services to Orlando residents. Central Florida Foundation is contracted to provide strategic insight, leadership and technical support, which has transformed the way the City of Orlando manages and awards grants to nonprofit organizations in our community. The platform is a comprehensive grants management tool that has streamlined Orlando's CIP grant management process and improved outcomes. The Foundation's staff and management have been outstanding partners for 4 years. We appreciate our partnership, which helps the city address our residents' core human services and most critical needs.
