    Distribution of Funds:

    All nonprofit organizations awarded grants will receive a grant contract letter along with a check. Acceptance of the check indicates agreement with the terms of the grant contract letter. It is expected that the nonprofit will sign and return one copy of the letter. Grant funds will be disbursed according to the schedule submitted by the grant recipient in their proposal.
