Grant Q&A: Question 1 (Areas of Need)

Posted on December 13, 2019 at 11:34 AM by Shalom Black

Question:
In Question 1, Area(s) of Need: 

1. Are there different “buckets” of money available for each Area of Need or will grants be equally considered no matter to which Area of Need they align?
2. How do you define Long-term Support? For example, would six months be considered long-term in a one-year grant cycle?

Answer:
1. There are no "buckets" or allocations of funds for specific Areas of Need. All applications will be considered equally regardless of Area of Need.
2. Long-Term Support is defined as "Services that focus on assisting individuals who have continuing, long-term support needs to remain healthy, safe, and independent in the community." This definition references continuing needs that require added supports throughout a significant portion of a person's life, as opposed to several months or years.
