The Grant Application Process
- Determine your organization’s eligibility and type of grant best suited to your project. Please contact the Grant Officer: email@example.com if you have questions.
- Fill out your application.
- The Grant Officer reviews the applications for completeness and compliance with the grant guidelines and distributes the applications to the Application Review Committee (ARC). The ARC makes recommendations to the Board of Directors for Vision grants. Opportunity grant decisions are made by the Executive Director, the Chair of ARC, and a Board member living in the grantee’s county.
- Vision Grant awards follow an established timeline, with final notification coming after the Board meetings in June and January. Opportunity Grant notifications typically require 30 days for submission, review by ARC, and finally notification of the applicant.
