One Step Closer to Getting Funding

Follow the steps below to begin the grant application process.

Apply for a Grant

The first step is to complete the application form found on our website to provide us with a clear understanding of how the proposal fits the mission of our foundation. We encourage applicants to provide comprehensive information that fully explains the project. 

Grant Review

Every application is reviewed by our foundation. The goal of this review is to understand what the project entails, why it is important, how it will be implemented, and how it will be maintained once all grant funding has ended. After the review, a follow-up questionnaire and clarifying questions may be submitted to the applicants whose grants are considered for funding. 

Clarifying Questions and/or Site Visit

Following the application review and submission of responses to any clarifying questions, we will schedule a discussion or possibly a site visit with members of your organization charged with implementation of the grant. This discussion/site visit provides applicants with an opportunity to showcase other resources that will allow the grantee to successfully implement the proposed project.

Decision

Once all of the questions have been answered and the site visit has been completed, the Grant Review Committee will meet to determine if the project will be funded. Funding decisions will be made by November 15th for fall funding and May 15th for the spring funding

Contract

Once your grant application is approved, we will notify you and ask you to complete a contract between your organization and the Neag Foundation. This will include intended results, targets, milestones or reporting deliverables, as well as information about funding.
