  • Funding decisions will be made the week of October 29



Step 2: We review your letter of inquiry using a team approach.


First and foremost we are looking to ensure that your request aligns with our community investment priorities.


Step 3: You complete the online grant application.


If we recommend that you move forward with a full grant application, you’ll complete the online grant application by the date we give you.


Step 4: We review your grant application.


Step 5: Final grant decisions are made.


A final decision about your grant is made. Your organization may receive full or partial funding, or in some cases, we may decline to fund your project.


After the grant agreement is signed and returned to us, a grant check will be mailed. When your project is finished, we will ask you to report on your progress toward your goals and outcomes. This requirement must be fulfilled before you can apply for another grant. Reporting is done electronically.
