Additional Details

The board meets three times a year on the schedule indicated below. This schedule outlines our grant application deadlines for returning applicants. New grantees must complete a Letter of Intent (LOI) at least 90 days prior to the full grant request deadline. The earlier a LOI and grant application is received, the greater the likelihood the grant will be reviewed and presented at the corresponding board meeting.
