Apply for Grants

All applications received by a given application deadline will be reviewed the following week so long as funding is still available. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Application Due Dates

We recommend that applications are submitted as soon as possible to receive your grant funding, if awarded. Familiarize yourself with the Grant Process Overview (opens in a new tab) to determine the most appropriate time for your group to complete an application. Applying close to or after the date of your event will mean that your group will not receive awarded money until after the event occurs.

(CLPs will receive a transfer within ~2-4 weeks; RSOs will receive checks within ~3-6 weeks).
