2020-2022 Grant Cycle

The application window for our new 2-year grant funding cycle (July 2020 – June 2022) has closed. If you have a smaller, volunteer-based project that needs funding, we encourage you to look into our Micro Grant program.

2020 GRANT CYCLE: UPDATES AND DATES

In addition to the focus on Desired Community Outcomes, the 2020 grant cycle also starts our new two-year grant funding period.  Specifically, this means that organizations applying in the fall of 2019 will be awarded a two-year grant (July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2022).  Approved organizations are eligible to receive between $5,000-$25,000 in grant awards; payments are made in quarterly installments.

 

The grant must be for two continuous years of funding for the same program. Applicants will include a two-year budget in their full application. This multi-year funding will increase focus on outcomes and allow more opportunities for deeper and richer partnerships. Letters of Agreement will be completed annually, and all funding is contingent upon the achievement of anticipated results and the availability of funds.  

 

Two year funding also provides the opportunity for more real-time reporting on results throughout the grant period. Brief quarterly reports will be required that are uploaded to the grants portal. The report only focuses on results and does not contain a narrative piece.

ATTENTION 2020 GRANT APPLICANTS:

Due to the pandemic, our timeline for decision-making on the grants for 2020-2022 has been delayed slightly.  We do still anticipate a July 1st start date for contract, but will be announcing grant awards later than planned). 

 

We are asking that you take this short 8-question survey and let us know how things look for you.  We know that the full impact of this crisis won’t be known for some time. Please complete this by Friday, April 24th; the results of the survey will be compiled and shared with the review teams. Thank you!
