What is the grant review process?
The District grant application process will be completed electronically through the District website. All grant applications will be reviewed immediately after the requisition closing date. If further information or clarification is required, the applicant will be contacted via mail and/or email. The Community Health Benefits Committee will render grant award and denial recommendations to the Board of Trustees. Once a decision has been made by The Board of Trustees, the applicant will be notified via mail and/or e-mail. The Community Health Benefit Committee and Board of Trustees each meet once a month, thus the process will take a minimum of 3 months from the date of submission. If you have any questions, or require additional information please contact our Grants Administrator.
