The grant application is in a separate file and may be filled out online if you wish, however, you must still print it off and send in a hard copy by postal mail or a scanned copy via email. To qualify for a 1:1 match, you must complete and return the Affidavit which is found on the last page of the application file.
To request grant funding, an applicant must complete the “Grant Request Form” and return it to your regional representative. Please note that the deadline for 2017 Marketing Grants was October 14, 2016. Information for 2018 Marketing Grants will be available shortly.
