Review: Once a full application packet has been
received, it will be assigned to a program officer for review, who
may request a site visit. Please understand that an invitation to
submit an application packet does not guarantee that the
application will be approved.
Step Four - Grant Decisions: After each
quarterly Board meeting, applicants are notified by email regarding
the disposition of their request. Organizations selected for
funding will receive a grant agreement letter via
email, which must be printed, signed, scanned and
returned via email to the Grants Administrator. Funds are typically
disbursed within 30 days of Board approval, pending receipt of
an executed grant agreement letter. Organizations not selected for
funding will receive an email informing them of the Board's
decision within 14 days.
