The Outcomes/Expectations Report form must then also be completed at the end of your grant cycle to report how your goals were achieved. A PDF version of the report is below.

- Provide a list of your Board members and a bio of any persons administering the program and responsible for the grant money.
- You must review your application for spelling and grammar errors.
The grant application will be evaluated by committee members who are responsible for making recommendations to the board. The grants are due to the Foundation (in our office) no later than May 1st and November 1st each year. The Grant Coordinator will contact the applicant if any questions arise during the evaluation process. For May 1st applications a Board of Directors vote will be at the July meeting.

ALL GRANT DECISIONS ARE FINAL.
