Now is the time to put that dream project into action! Project Grants applications are due by April 1. Now is a perfect time to begin working on your application. The process is straightforward.

  • You can begin an application and edit it as many times as needed before you finally submit it.
  • You can submit as many grant applications as you have ideas.
  • There is no range for the amount requested per grant.

Reminder: If you have a mini-grant and want to expand it into a Project Grant, you will need to submit a New Project Grant Application.

If you run into any problems or have any questions, contact us at FEF Grants
