The Grant Applications are due back to the CDF Office, fully completed, by March 31. The Applications are distributed to the Board Members who then begin their review. At the Annual Grant Distribution Meeting held at the end of May, the discussions about each individual Application begin.

The Grant Awardees are notified within one week after the Annual Meeting and are invited to attend the Annual Distribution Event held at the end of June to receive their Award. This event has become a tremendous opportunity for each of these groups and organizations to meet, share information, and, in some cases, collaborate with each other to achieve their common goals.
