Pre-Application Information:

AIl grant applications are due in by midnight, March 31, 2019.

Between April and June of each year, applications are reviewed, prioritized and voted on by the VSF Board of Directors. By late June, applicants will begin to be notified by e-mail whether or not they will be receiving funding for their project.

Due to the nature of some projects, if an organization is in need of the full amount of the grant monies to complete the project, they can submit in writing a request to substantiate the need. The board will consider the request and any grant history, if applicable.

Upon receipt of your signed grant agreement, funds will begin to be disbursed in October of each year, so applicants should plan accordingly if their projects are of a time-sensitive nature.
