No. The grants are administered by the government to organizations or individuals who apply.
How do individuals apply to receive funding?
The applications for grant funds should be submitted no later than the date of application. They should include as much information as possible indicating:
The type of organization or individual
The purpose of the project
Additional information, such as the funding source
The location where the project should take place.
Note: Applicants should also complete and send the Form 89, Application for Grant funds Authorization.
How long does the process take to process?
The application processing time varies based on the total estimated costs, number of qualified applicants, and number of applications we receive. A maximum of 10 minutes is estimated, and may be exceeded by a number of factors.
What are the most common reasons for delay?
The number of applications received by the Grants Office has been below our annual maximum (12,500) for the past four years. We are aware that a backlog exists in some areas.
For the most part, this is an administrative issue, as long delays do not result in the denial of a contract. There are some exceptions, including one case where a delay required the revocation of a contract that was already awarded to another federal grantee.
We are always seeking to receive proposals as soon as possible. Although delays may occur, delays are generally manageable.
Where is the application form available?
Each grantee receives a separate application form. It includes all questions we ask during the application process.
When should I sign the application?
All applications, whether they are from an individual or an organization, should be signed on a separate page and not placed on the same page as the forms to be filled out. This ensures correct registration of both copies of an application.
Where is the application received when you submit your own?
When the applications are processed.
What if an application is lost?
If you receive a new application, your last copy will be available after we send the originals to the relevant government funding agency.
Where is the application returned if it has been lost, stolen, or destroyed?
You request a re-issued application form with one copy of it. When you contact us with this information, we will re-issue the same form using the information provided.
