New 2012 Annual Grant Application on ORBI Grants Page

The application form for the 2012 annual grant program is now on the Grants Page.

There is one major change this year.  Based on the evaluation following the 2011 grant panel meeting, we have added an optional page that you can file with your application.

If you believe that the income and expense categories on the project budget page need more explanation, you may include a one page budget narrative to your application.  This page will not count as one of your five support materials pages.

The budget narrative will be limited to one page, so you need to keep your explanations brief.
