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

Posted to Nonprofit Grant Updates 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.

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

Posted to Nonprofit Grant Updates on December 9, 2019 at 10:19 AM by Shalom Black

Question: 
Question 1:
 If we stated that the requested funding will be used for operational and program support and then went on to state how the two programs relate to the Area(s) of Need, is that correct? Or do we need to state that the funds will be used for salaries and so forth? 

Answer:
Question 1 specifically aligns the funding request to the Area(s) of Need. The answer should show that the request is an eligible use of funds under the Areas of Need; if requesting operational funds, you should give a general description of what you are including in that category (like salaries rent, etc) and how funding your operating costs support your services. This is the question where you will introduce the service you will reference throughout the remainder of your application.

Grant Q&A: Questions 1 & 3 (Areas of Need)

Posted to Nonprofit Grant Updates on November 25, 2019 at 4:07 PM by Nancy McCormick

Question:
Please provide some clarification on the difference between Question 1 and Question 3 in the application:

  • Question 1: Describe what the proposed funding will be used for, and how that use relates to the Area(s) of Need chosen above.
  • Question 3: Describe your organization including the following: …Service(s) for which the requested funds will be used aligned to area of need....
In which of these are we supposed to justify how our services relate to the area of need chosen? If both, do you expect to see the same answer for question 1 and that section of question 3? Is there a distinction between these two items that I may be missing?

Answer: 

Question 1 specifically aligns the funding request to the Area(s) of Need. The answer should show that the request is an eligible use of funds under the Areas of Need. This is the question where you will introduce the service you will reference throughout the remainder of your application.

Question 3 should put the focus on the services to be provided. Areas of Need are mentioned again in this question to help ensure that the applicant frames their service description within the context of their chosen Area of Need. The services are described in more detail; for instance, how the service is situated into the organization, where services are located, etc.

Throughout all parts of their proposal, applicants are expected to provide consistent responses when asked about their funding request, area of need, services, and impacts. To that end, applicants may be asked to show the alignment of these elements in multiple parts of the application.
