Request for Grant Application
Our staff will notify you via email if you have been invited to submit a full Grant Application or if your request has been declined. An invitation to submit a Grant Application is not a guarantee of funding.
Grant Application Submission & Review
If you have been invited to submit a Grant Application, you will receive instructions about how to access our full application via the Grants Portal. Invited applicants will be notified of the final deadline for the Grant Application and will have approximately one month to submit. Click HERE to be routed to the Grants Portal.
Once we receive your Grant Application, we begin our review process. During review, our team may request follow-up conversations, site visits, or supplemental data to learn more about your organization, its mission, and its impact.
Board members make all final decisions about grants. Once we have made a decision, we will notify you. If you have been awarded a grant, you will receive a grant agreement for review and signature. This agreement will also outline reporting and acknowledgement requirements. Once the signed agreement is received, we will process payment of the grant, typically within 30 days. Acknowledgement requirements and downloads can be found on our Current Grantees: Resources page. Receiving a grant does not guarantee future funding.
