A signed grant agreement, valid W-9 form, and project plan must be submitted before any grant funds may be disbursed. The project plan follows your community investigation, so it’s really up to you how quickly this may be done. Once those documents are received and reviewed, and any changes made, the first payment will be sent within 30 days. The final payment of $250 will be mailed at the end of the implementation period, after requirements are met and the final product is submitted with Media Releases. For those selecting the $250 grant option, the check will be sent at the end of the implementation period.
