We will be accepting applications submitted using the following form from October 15 through December 1, 2018 for grants to be paid in the first quarter of 2019.

Applications submitted before or after those dates will only be considered depending on the volume of applications submitted during the window and the availability of funding.

We will accept for consideration applications during announced grant windows only. If you are interested in being considered for a First Steps Grant, please complete and submit the following application form during the grant window. It is important for you to provide us with all the information requested to the best of your ability. The Grant Committee will review all applications received during the window before awarding grants, so there will be no benefit to being “first in line.” Please note that acceptance of an application is not a guarantee that a grant will be awarded.

Additional Materials: The Grant Committee may request that you provide further relevant documentation during its grant assessment process.
