Ohio Commission on Fatherhood


 The Ohio Commission on Fatherhood (OCF) would like to wish all Ohio's fathers and families a very happy New Year!  We have several new commissioners to welcome and plenty of activities planned for the coming year including a brand new grant writing training.  You can read more about it and register in the link below.



For the first time ever, OCF is offering a free grant writing training from noon to 4 p.m. on Friday, February 13, in Columbus, Ohio.


This training is especially appropriate for new fatherhood programs that are interested in applying for grants. We will help demystify the grant writing process by taking you through a previously funded grant application, step-by-step. No previous experience in grant writing is necessary. This is a hands-on training where you can get your questions answered.


Please join us if you would like to learn how to write a successful grant application. Space is

limited so register today!

The US Department of Justice is requesting grant applications for a Reentry Mentoring Project to work with young fathers (age 25 or younger) who are returning to their families and communities.  Only non-profits are eligible to apply.  Applications are due March 2, 2015.  To learn more, click here .
