Returning Applicants

A returning applicant is defined by email address. So if you are the person who submitted an application for your organization last year using your email address, you are a returning applicant. If someone else submitted an application for your organization last year using their email address, but they are not the person responsible for submitting an application this year, see New Applicant instructions.

Do not wait until the day of the deadline to start the application. It is recommended that you start your application by Dec. 1 so you have time to ask questions and troubleshoot if needed.

It is strongly recommended that you type your application into a Word document and save it on your own computer and then copy and paste that text into the online form. In that way, you will be sure to have a record of your grant application. There are character count limits for each response that include spaces and punctuation.
