When evaluating applications careful consideration is given to the following:
Applications are typically reviewed the last Wednesday of these months: January, March, May, July, September and November. To be considered in a certain grant “round,” please submit your applications the 2nd to last Wednesday of those months. (*These dates can be effected by holidays – please pay close attention to specific dates stated in each grant round description.) After the Grant’s committee reviews, applications are then considered by the MCCF Board. (Board meetings are typically in Feb, April, June, August, Oct and Dec on the 2nd Wednesday.) After board consideration, you will be contacted by email with the next steps in the application process.
Each year, the MCCF will completely close applications in Mid-May to update the grant system. The new fiscal year will begin a grant year on July 1, annually.

All applications undergo a preliminary review by the MCCF staff for eligibility, completeness, and clarity. Applicants will be sent an acknowledgement of receipt of proposals and notification of any missing or incomplete information. The applications are then sent to the Grants Committee, comprised of volunteer citizens for review. The committee makes recommendations to the Board of Directors for final approval.
If your proposal is approved, you will receive a grant agreement that outlines the terms and conditions under which the grant has been authorized. A final narrative and fiscal report will be required upon completion of the project or, in the case of ongoing projects, within one year of funding. Final evaluation reports may be accessed and submitted through your online grant portal.
