Ready to Apply?

Our grant application process is streamlined through our online grant management portal. The grant application process begins with submitting a Letter of Intent (LOI) through the online portal. To submit an LOI, you will need to first create an account in our online grant management portal. All applicants are required to create an account. [Note that your LOI/grant application can be saved as a draft, and when you log on again it’s easy to return to that draft, make edits, and submit the application when you’re ready to do so.
