If your organization receives a grant in 2019—

All Grant recipients will receive a Grant Evaluation Form. This form must be returned by December 1, 2019. Failure to submit the Grant Evaluation Form disqualifies applicants from being awarded a grant in the coming year. All funds must be used for the stated purpose by December 1, 2019.  

If you have not submitted the Grant Evaluation Form by the deadline, you will need to wait a year before applying again.
