What happens after I submit a grant application?
We consider receipt of your application the beginning of a relationship. Once your application is complete and addresses a priority within our grantmaking program, it will be assigned to a grant officer for review. A grant officer will speak with you further and may request a meeting. In the course of the application review, applicants are also requested to share with a member of our team any new information that may significantly affect the proposed project.Share
How long does the review process take?
Each grant process varies on the scope of the request.Share
