Subdivision Applicant Codes
The Commission uses a unique code to identify applicants, determine their eligibility to receive funding and to manage and track project information. This code is to be provided on page 1 of the Application for Financial Assistance. Subdivision codes are assigned by the Commission at the written request of the applicant on the entity’s letterhead and should be made prior to applying for financial assistance. Requests by conservation nonprofit organizations, as defined in Section 164.20 (B) of the Revised Code, must be signed by the chief executive officer and also include documentation of their purpose and Internal Revenue Service tax exempt status. Nonprofit organizations receiving I.R.S. 501 (c) status on or after October 9, 1969 must include a copy of I.R.S. form 1023 “recognition of exemption”. Nonprofit organizations receiving I.R.S. 501 (c) status before October 9, 1969 must include a copy of their I.R.S. letter of exemption. The IRS documentation should indicate that one of its designated activities is directly related to the purposes for which Clean Ohio Green Space Conservation grants are provided. A conservation nonprofit organization is one which represents the interests of citizens who are concerned with the sustainability of the natural environment and the preservation of native natural habitats and communities including the air, water and land necessary to sustain them.
