**IMPORTANT CHANGE IN APPLICATION POLICY EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY**
Applications will be accepted at anytime throughout the year. The old quarterly review cycle has been discarded (see crossed out verbiage below) and we now accept and review applications as they are submitted. This change was made to provide quicker processing of applications and to provide better service to our community.
Applications are approved by the Board of Trustees on a quarterly basis. The deadlines for these applications are: March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31. Applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. on or before the deadline date.
Faxed applications will not be accepted. Funds will not be awarded to cover the cost of goods purchased or services performed prior to this application. Applications that do not meet criteria will be denied.
The new application form is now ready for use. If you have downloaded an application from before 10/14/2013, please discard it and download and use the new form (download link below).
