Grant Cycles

To better serve our community, we have established grant cycles with specific application and award deadlines. These cycles will provide clarity regarding the grant process and will help applicant organizations better time submissions to meet the expressed need.

Grants submitted after an application deadline will be withdrawn or moved to the next grant cycle, if applicable. As a general rule, you will hear back from us with a decision within three months of the below deadlines.
