Pre-Application Information:

To access the CREATE grant application, you must complete the pre-application steps first. Once you have completed these steps, you will receive full access to the online application. Once an application is reviewed and scored by the CREATE Expert Review Committee (ERC), results are emailed within 10 business days.

An entity can submit multiple applications during the same grant year, but must go through the pre-application process each time. Multiple courses can also be included in each application.

Applicants are allowed to remain in the pre-application stage, as needed, if there is a delay in completing and submitting an application. Applicants will be notified at the end of the grant fiscal year (June 30th) and will need to start the application process from the beginning for the new grant year unless an exemption is requested in writing by the applicant to keep their pre-application status open.

Eligible applicants may request up to 50 percent of eligible expenses. CREATE can fund a larger portion of eligible costs if the applicant has applied and been approved for a financial waiver of the 50 percent match.

CREATE is a reimbursement grant program.
