The Interfaith Social Action Council has awarded thousands in grants each year to South Shore service organizations with an approved IRS 501(c)3 designation needing funds to accomplish specific goals.

​  The purpose of the grants is to benefit residents of our service area bounded by the Alafia River on the North, the Hillsborough County line on the East and South, and the Tampa Bay shoreline on the West.

​  ​Online requests are accepted in August and February each year. The Council’s grants committee reviews all submissions and makes recommendations to an executive board comprised of one member per house of worship. The requests this board accepts are then voted on by the entire Interfaith Social Action Council to determine award recipients
