The Community Foundation of Otsego County is seeking input on how to best target $200,000 in grants for the spring of 2021.

“We rely on citizen input to help us direct our grant making, so we ask people to please take our survey at The survey will remain active through mid-January 2021,” a media release from the organization said.

Everyone who completes the survey by Jan. 15 will be entered into a drawing. A $100 donation to the Otsego County nonprofit of the winner’s choice will be awarded to the nonprofit.

Founded in 2019, the foundation awarded its first $200,000 in grants in 2020 to help nonprofits address the COVID-19 crisis, the release said. The awards included dedicated funds for personal protection equipment, cleaning supplies, child care providers, subsidies for local farms aiding food pantries, farmers’ markets, medical co-pays, rent assistance, transportation assistance and assistance in reopening small businesses across the county.
