Grantmaking Procedures

A Grant Committee reviews all grant applications. They are responsible for reading the grant application in full, asking questions of the grant applicant (should clarification be needed), and then proposing a recommendation to CRPCA members at the next business meeting. The final decision to fund is made by a vote of all members who are present at the business meeting which coincides with the grant giving cycle.

Recipients are notified within one week of the decision and awards are posted to the CRPCA website and included in the PPCA newsletter. If awarded funding, the recipient will be required to sign a contract with PPCA regarding the use of the funds. Recipients are also expected to report project impact at a PPCA business meeting or through the PPCA newsletter.

 

How to Apply

To solicit funds from PPCA please submit our Grant Application (Word document) along with a spreadsheet or similar document showing how the money is to be used. By our application deadline, send the electronic documents to our Grants Coordinator, Chuck McConnell, at grants@portlandpeacecorps.org.
