Now- Mini Grant Applications Close June 20
Last week you should have received an e-mail letting
you know mini-grant applications are now open. I've received a few
questions and wanted to follow up to help you with the process.
How do I access a mini-grant application?
If you have a program already registered in the
Program Directory, you can begin a Mini-Grant Application immediately at
the link above.
If you do not have a program registered, you must
first Register a Program
so that it may be selected as
your lead program.
Please be aware, new programs registered
are the program directory are first vetted by NGCP staff and may take
up to 48 hours to appear in the directory. They must be in the
directory before an application can be started.
If you are
in the process of waiting for your program directory listing to appear,
you can still see the questions asked to formulate your answers by
viewing a sample application.
Funds are generally used within a year of funding
date, but there is flexibility available in the funding period.
Deadline to apply is midnight June 20, 2010.
For further questions, please contact Amy Foster,
