Grant Categories

The Standard Grant is the more common grant of $5,000 – $15,000. If you are applying for general operating funds, you must apply within the Standard Grant category. The High Impact Grant of $18,000 – $23,000 is reserved for exceptional, meaningful projects or youth programming. When applying for a High Impact Grant, be aware that if the Grant Review Committee concludes the application does not merit the minimum $18,000 award, the applicant will not receive any funding during this grant cycle. Refer to Grant Guidelines for more information.
