The applications are available for three levels of organizations:
- Level 1: Organizations with budgets of $149,999 or less are eligible to receive up to $6,000 or a maximum of 10% of the most completed fiscal year’s operating budget.
- Level 2: Organizations with budgets of $150,000 to $499,999 are eligible to receive up to $14,000.
- Level 3: Organizations with budgets of $500,000 or more are eligible to receive up to $20,000.
Operating budget thresholds are determined by actual (cash) operating revenues for the most recently completed fiscal year.

Grant funds may be expended for the purposes of activities that occur or are obligated within the grant period of October 1, 2020 – September 19, 2021.
Organizations that were successfully funded in the prior fiscal year and whose grants scored a 90 or above are eligible for a second-year option grant update without having to submit a complete application packet.
