The West Harlem Local Development Corporation has launched its online Pre-Grant Application, the first step in the organization’s first cycle of its grant program. The application is located in the grants section of the website.
The application will give WHLDC a snapshot of nonprofits who apply to determine that they are eligible to receive a grant from the organization, ensuring they are a 501(c)3 organization, that they will serve West Harlem and that they will fulfill one of the community’s needs as outlined in the Community Benefits Agreement, among other important criteria.
The Pre-Grant Application is due by January 14, 2013. Successful pre-grant applicants will be invited to fill out a longer grant application, which will be due on February 8, 2013.
Grant awardees will be notified in March 2013.
WHDC has been holding workshops with nonprofits in the community, guiding them through the Pre-Grant Application and outlining the grant-making process. The next two meetings are at 6 p.m. on December 18 and 19, 2013. You MUST R.S.V.P. to these meetings to attend.
