        We are pleased to announce that the grant application period for the Rotary Year 2016-2017 will be open as of November 1, 2015
GUIDELINES FOR GRANT APPLICATIONS FOR 2016-2017
--EACH CLUB MUST HAVE TRAINED MEMBERS IN THE GRANT PROCESS. Training sessions were held at District Training Assembly in May, 2015 and will be held at the  Foundation Seminar October 31, 2015.  To register for the training session at the October 31, 2015- go to the district web-site—LOOK ON LEFT UNDER DISTRICT EVENTS-CLICK ON FOUNDATION SEMINAR-FILL IN REGISTRATION AND SEND IN.  Many Clubs have participated with trained members. If there are enough Clubs interested, additional training sessions may be held.
EACH CLUB MUST SIGN A NEW 2016-2017 MOU( Memorandum of Agreement)  The Memorandum of Agreement can be obtained by contacting  Peter Clayton, Stewardship Chair at super_limey@yahoo.com.   
                                    Clubs  receive 100% of their approved grant amount as the  payment . This eases  the financial burden for all Clubs.  Please remember:  Final grant reports are still required for each project at the end of the Rotary year.  Any Club or Group that receives grant monies but does not complete the report in a timely manner will jeopardize their ability to receive future  Grant funding.
