In addition, any organization with two years of consecutive funding from the Community Foundation will be required to wait two years before submitting an additional application. For example, if an organization is funded in the June 2013 and June 2014 cycles, that organization will be ineligible to apply again until June 2016. Any organization that has received prior funding from the Community Foundation must have a final report on file at CFCG prior to the submission of a new grant application.
