FREQUENCY OF APPLICATION
Current grantees may reapply for programs currently funded but will only be considered if they demonstrate substantial progress toward success by the grant application due date. Funding for an organization is limited to three consecutive grant cycles after which the organization becomes ineligible for the following two grant cycles. Organizations may submit only one application during any grant cycle year.
The Momentum Grant is a two-year grant being offered as a pilot in 2018 for the first time. It is a grant for one year with an option to renew for a second year without reapplying. The purpose of the Momentum Grant is to allow an organization to expand upon the program/project of the single-year grant. The Momentum Grant must have measurable outcomes that are in addition to what the single-year grant demonstrates. Second year funding is not guaranteed, but if the organization is progressing well toward the measurable outcomes identified in the grant, the second year grant will be awarded.
