GUIDELINES FOR GRANT APPLICATIONS FOR THE ROTARY YEAR 2022-2023
 
EACH CLUB MUST HAVE TRAINED MEMBERS IN THE GRANT PROCESS. An in-person training session will be held following the District Foundation Seminar on November 6, 2021. To register for the training session on November 6, 2021 visit the district website, www.RotaryDistrict7430.org LOOK ON LEFT COLUMN UNDER DISTRICT EVENTS - CLICK ON FOUNDATION SEMINAR - FILL IN REGISTRATION
 
NEW WEBINAR GRANT TRAINING CERTIFICATION
 
If you can not attend the Foundation Seminar, Grant Training Certification will be held during on-line webinars via zoom on the following dates. An e-mail will be sent to all Rotarians for registration to these webinars.    Should any club or area prefer in-person grant certification,please contact District Foundation Chair, Cindy Hornaman at hornamca@ptd.net and we will be glad to come to a District Area or Club.
 
November 6, 2021- Following Foundation Seminar
Monday, January 10, 2022 : ZOOM 7:00 pm- go to website to register
Tuesday, March 1, 2022: ZOOM 7:00 PM- go to website to register
 
EACH CLUB MUST SIGN A NEW 2022-2023  MOU (Memorandum of Agreement.) The MOU 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.
 
GRANT TYPES, CRITERIA, AND TIMELINES
 
ALL GRANT APPLICATIONS MUST FALL WITHIN AT LEAST ONE OF THE SEVEN AREAS OF FOCUS:
  • Peacebuilding & Conflict Prevention
  • Disease Prevention & Treatment
  • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
  • Maternal & Child Health
  • Basic Education and Literacy
  • Community Economic Development
  • Protecting the Environment
 
 
DISTRICT GRANTS
 
District Grants are those grants in which the total project budget amount is less than $30,000. To apply for a District Grant, trained members access the District 7430 website and enter the grant module. Select “Submit a Grant Request” and all the grant application information can be entered directly into the website. Each club may only have two open District grants at any given time and must not be delinquent in any grant reports. Specific District Grant criteria will be reviewed during the training sessions and can be accessed via the website.
 
REMEMBER: “For Year” should read 2022-2023
 
GLOBAL GRANTS
 
Global Grants are those grants in which the total budget amount is greater than $30,000 and MUST have an international partner.
 
To apply for a global grant, trained members access the District Website and submit a Global Grant Proposal to the District Committee.  Once the grant is approved by the District committee,  the club will be notified of their ability to enter the grant  into the Rotary International website Grant Application Tool under The Rotary Foundation tab.
