There is the capability to save your progress and complete the application later if time does not permit you to complete the application in one session. An email confirmation will be received once the formal proposal has been submitted.
Our Team Will Review Your Application
We may request a site visit as part of the application review process.
Notice of Application Decision
Funding decisions will be made on a rolling basis. If a grant is awarded to your request, you will receive notification along with a formal grant agreement to be signed/accepted. If your grant application is denied, you will receive a response stating that it has been declined along with a brief explanation of our decision. There is the opportunity for grants to be renewed. An updated, abbreviated application will need to be completed for consideration in renewing the grant once the current grant has come to a close.
