Grants Process
Notice of the opening grant cycle is made by email to local nonprofits and through the local newspaper.  All grant requests are made through an online system - see above. Once the application deadline has passed, the Network's Grants Committee vets all the applications and makes recommendations to the full Network membership. Each member votes for her choice of grant award, and final decisions are made once all the votes have been tallied. An awards ceremony is held in late April/early May.

Please contact Katie Crumpler , NCCF regional associate, for additional information.
