Grants will normally be awarded for one year, but occasionally be made for multiple years to ensure proper implementation and development of the program.
Grants for ongoing annual support may be occasionally awarded, particularly when there is a compelling community purpose for doing so. Such grants will usually be made for one or two years, at the board’s discretion; in the case of multiple-year grants, the grant amounts will usually be progressively reduced during the term of the grant.
