Organizations may submit only one application per grant cycle.
Organizations receiving a Community Action Grant in any grant cycle from an entity that is part of PACF are not eligible for funding in the immediate next cycle from that same entity but may be considered for support from other entities.
When the Foundation declines to support an application, the applicant may call the Foundation to discuss their proposal and to inquire about reapplying. After an application is declined once, the organization may re-submit the application one time; if an application has been declined twice, then the organization may not submit another request for funding of the same project.
The Foundation pays its grants as reimbursement to expenses incurred.
