Grant proposals will be accepted and reviewed on a quarterly basis. Applicants are allowed to apply only twice per year (e.g., if an applicant is not awarded a grant the first time that they apply, they may make one more application attempt within a 12 month period.) All proposals are due by 4 PM on the day of the deadline.
The grant policies, guidelines, programs, application requirements, and funding decisions are the responsibility of the Board of Trust. These items may be modified by the Board of Trust at any time in its sole discretion.

The Trust provides no-cost extensions in some instances. Please call your program officer to discuss your specific circumstance. Please note that an extension will not be offered after a grant term has ended.
Locate the grant term start date in either your award notification email or your award agreement/memorandum of understanding (MOU). April 1stis Q1, July 1 is Q2, October 1 is Q3 and January 1 is Q4. Review the grant cycle deadlines for each quarter and find the quarter that corresponds to your grant term start date. You will need to apply based on the deadlines that align with that quarter. If you are still unclear, call your program staff member and they will look that information up for you.
It’s possible. Please contact your program officer to discuss a revision/reallocation at any point during the grant term. Please note that a revision/reallocation cannot occur after a grant term has ended.
Site visits typically last an hour and include a tour of the facility (if appropriate) and the opportunity to ask questions about the organization and its programs. The site visit is not an audit and should not interrupt the organization’s normal operations. The Trust’s staff and board members visit all grantees bi-annually and new grantees in the first year of Trust funding.
