We have three types of grants, each with their own application process. However, the first step for each is the same: Review the Grantseeker Guidelines. Once you have reviewed the guidelines, follow the steps based on the type of grant you are seeking.
YOUR IDEAS/UNSOLICITED – GRANT IDEAS FROM YOU
To apply for this type of grant:
- Review the Grantseeker Guidelines to see if your project aligns with our funding priorities.
- If you want to discuss your grant idea, please contact our grants department at 860-724-1580.
- If your idea aligns with our strategic objectives, we may ask you to submit a concept paper that further describes the work and expected outcomes. Instructions for completing the concept paper can be found in this electronic form. Applicants should email completed concept papers to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- After submitting your concept paper, you may be invited to submit a full proposal. Please see the Your Idea Proposal Application for instructions. Applicants should email completed forms to email@example.com.
