They’ll use the criteria below to review proposals. Their desire to spread awards across the region may result in a proposal being considered for funding even if it does not fully meet all the criteria.
COVID-19 Response: The requested funds will be used by the applicant to help their organization or the Black people, Indigenous people and people of color they serve respond to and recover from the impact of COVID-19.
Racial Equity Focus: The mission and proposed activities of the applicant reflect that they are working towards a community that is equitable, particularly with respect to race.
Inclusive Community Engagement: The proposed project engages BIPOC populations and advances new community collaborations. The funded work will build and strengthen community partnerships and mobilize community members, particularly those impacted by racial disparities.
Outcomes: The results of the proposed work are clearly stated. The applicant has defined the quantitative (countable) and/or qualitative (describable) measures they will use to gauge their success.
How to Apply
Submit your applications through WCI’s online eGrant system.
eGrant does not automatically save your progress on the online form, so it is VERY important that you save your work frequently.
If you need an application in a different format, please let them know by contacting Wendy. They will accommodate you to the best of their ability.
