How are grant recipients selected?
A committee comprised of the Board of Directors, members of our advisory committee, volunteers, and members of the community will review all applications received during the grant application cycle. Each member of the committee has an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about the applicants to the rest of the committee. An anonymous poll is taken to determine who the top candidates are. Based on available funding, the Board of Directors will approve the quantity of grants to be awarded and the amount awarded in each grant.
