Grant proposals will be reviewed once each year in January.
Requests for funding are accepted throughout the year, and must be received or postmarked by the close of business (5:00 p.m.) November 2. Applications received after the deadline will be considered for funding during the next cycle.
When submitting a request:
- Be specific with the nature of the request and the amount requested.
- The amount being requested should be at least $750, and not exceed $5,000.
- Each grant proposal should address only one project.
- Please note: The committee does not approve multiple year funding or general operating grants. Also, the committee will not review a list of projects and select one that is appealing.
Qualified grant applications will be reviewed and award decisions made according to the date of the application.
If a grant is awarded to an organization, the proceeds of that grant will not be distributed to, or be used to benefit, any other program or organization other than the applicant.
