The Grant Application Process

The Grant Application Process – fully online!

  1. Determine your organization’s eligibility and type of grant best suited to your project.  If you’re curious about the application itself before you create a log-on, it can be downloaded here. Please contact the Grant Officer if you have questions.
  2. Create a logon here, and follow the steps to fill out your application
  3. 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.
  4. 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, followed by the notification of the applicant.
    ** The next deadline for Vision Grant Rough Drafts will be Wednesday, October 2, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. The Final Drafts for that Fall Cycle FY20 will be due Thursday, November 14, 2019 by 11:59 p.m.
