GRANT PROCESS

Grant applications will be accepted on a quarterly basis.  Grant cycles will be open for approximately six weeks prior to each grant cycle due date of December 1st, March 1st, June 1st, and September 1st.  Signing up to receive our e-blasts is the most efficient way to receive announcements on when our grant cycles open and close.  Please check our website frequently about six weeks prior to each grant cycle deadline to ensure grant requests are submitted on time. If using the online portal to submit a grant request, applicants must create a username and password and be eligible to submit an application.  (See more on the Eligibility page).  All applicants will be notified regarding the status of their request the month following each cycle deadline.  Paper and mail applications are available by submitting an online request or by calling (715) 497-3483.  Paper and mail applications will be sent out based on the same eligibility requirements.
