January 7, 2016

Applications are now being accepted for The Green Initiative Fund's Spring Grant Program. The spring grant program gives preference to larger and more complex projects.

Applicants must first submit an abstract form by one of two possible deadlines, January 29, 2016 by 5pm OR February 26, 2016 by 5pm, before they are invited by the TGIF Committee to submit a Final Application by 5pm on April 1, 2016. Not all abstract submissions will be invited to Stage 2.

Spring grant requests must be greater than $2,000.

TGIF Spring Grant Application Process

Stage 1: Abstract Submission
Submit an abstract submission form by one of the two deadlines. If you submit by the early deadline, the Committee may give you the opportunity to edit and resubmit your abstract by the final deadline. It is recommended you begin gathering any necessary project approvals for Stage 2 during Stage 1.

Stage 2: Final Application Submission (Invited Applicants Only)
Submit the 1) Application Submission Form, 2) any necessary signed Project Approval Form(s), and 3) the TGIF Metrics Spreadsheet by the deadline. Failure to submit these three requirements will disqualify your application.

To apply and receive more information, please visit TGIF's Spring Grant website.
