Type Of Support Considered

  • Project grants: restricted grants that help deliver specific programs or activities; most grants fall into this category

 

  • Organizational capacity-building grants: support intended to make discrete, specific investments to strengthen internal capabilities, knowledge and resources so that grantees can perform most effectively

 

  • General operating grants: unrestricted support used to cover the costs of running the organization and fulfilling the mission; it is unusual for first-time grantees to be awarded this type of grant

 

  • Grant amounts above $5,000, and up to $100,000 in some instances; it is unusual for first-time grantees to be awarded an amount at the top end of this range

 

  • Single-year support; multi-year support may be considered for longstanding grantees
