Thank you for your interest in Clothes Less Traveled Grants. A major way that income, generated by our thrift store, is gifted back to the local community, is through grants which are awarded to qualified non-profit organizations in the South Metro Atlanta area. CLT Grants are available as Annual Grants and Semi-Annual Grants. Annual grants are offered only once per calendar year.  Semi-Annual grants are offered twice per calendar year, in Spring and in Fall.  The postmark deadline for submitting Annual Grant Applications is February 1. The postmark deadlines for submitting Spring and Fall Semi-Annual Grant Applications are March 1 and September 1, respectively. No late applications will be accepted. Applications are only considered from 501(c)3 NON-PROFIT organizations serving the South Metro Atlanta Counties of Fayette, Coweta, Clayton, Spalding and the South Fulton Cities of College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto and Union City. (Henry County is no longer within our geographic granting area.) Applicants must be able to prove a MINIMUM three year 501(c)3 status with supporting recent financial documentation as requested. All applications must be complete as incomplete applications will not be considered. To learn more about CLT Grants, please click on the blue-grey tabs found in the text box below.

Clothes Less Traveled believes in giving back to the local community. One of the many ways is in the form of offering financial grant funding to local non-profit charities. If your 501c3 organization meets our guidelines, you may apply for a CLT Grant using the application that most suits your funding needs. An All-Volunteer Board of Directors reviews and votes on every grant application received. Over the past 20 years, CLT has awarded more than $4 million to qualified 501c3 organizations in our local community.
Annual Grants are ONLY considered once per calendar year in February. Annual grants are intended to provide organizations with financial assistance for general operational expenses during the coming year. For this reason, Annual Grant Awards are dispersed as equal quarterly payments in  March, June, September and December. The application deadline for Annual Grants is February 1.  Annual Grant Applicants will receive formal notification by mail of CLT Board decision by March 15.  Requests for annual funding must be resubmitted each year. Note: Annual Grant recipients may NOT apply for additional Semi-Annual Grants during any calendar year for which they are receiving annual support, unless it is an emergency request for funding.
Semi-Annual Grants are one-time awards for specific events or project needs. There are 2 cycles per year. Application deadlines are March 1 and September 1. Applicants will receive formal notification by mail of CLT Board decision within six weeks following the cycle application deadline. Semi-Annual Grants may be requested for each cycle within the same calendar year.
Applications are only considered from 501(c)3 NON-PROFIT organizations serving the South Metro Atlanta Counties of Fayette, Coweta, Clayton, Spalding and the South Fulton Cities of College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto and Union City. Applicants must be prepared to prove a MINIMUM three year 501(c)3 status with supporting recent financial documentation as requested.
