Frequency of Application
Current grantees may apply for new programs or for programs currently funded. If you are applying for a current program, the application will only be considered if the current program has demonstrated substantial progress toward success by the Jan 31 grant application due date. Funding for an organization is limited to three consecutive grant cycles after which the organization becomes ineligible for the following two grant cycles. Organizations may submit only one application during any grant cycle year.
The Decision-Making Process
Beginning in February, teams of AAWGT members evaluate all grant applications against established criteria in a process that includes appropriate follow-up. After a series of meetings to discuss initial evaluations, the outstanding proposals are selected and placed on a ballot that is presented to all AAWGT members at a voting meeting in May.
Opportunity for Debriefing
AAWGT will provide a debrief conference call to any applicant not on the final ballot after grant awards have been announced in mid-May. If desired, an applicant shall request a debriefing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 31, 2020. Please include a phone number in your email.
GRANT AWARDS are ANNOUNCED in MID-MAY
