Grant award must be expended within one calendar year from the signature of the grant agreement, unless a specific extension is authorized.
Grant requests may be from any individual or organization.
Grant-supported projects must be located in the counties served by the South Sound Chapter (Pierce and Thurston counties along with Counties south and west of Pierce and Thurston).
The initial award cycle for grants will begin each year on January 1, at which time a newly funded pool of grant money will be available from SSC. Applications received by March 1 will be evaluated during that month and awards will be announced by April 1. Note, however, that available grant funds are not always exhausted during this period, so be sure to check with the grant committee following April 1. Funds may still be available.
Should grant funds remain after the initial award cycle, SSC will consider proposals and award grants during the remainder of the calendar year. In these cases, applicants will be notified within 30 days of receipt of their application. Applicants should contact the SSC chair or grant committee chair if they are interested in submitting a proposal after the initial award announcements.
Grantees shall receive one half of the grant upon signature of the grant agreement and the balance upon submission of expense receipts and acceptance of the final report.
