Grant Application Process
The letter of intent is the first step in the application process. The deadline for submitting the letter of intent is Friday, February 7, 2014 at 4pm CDT. The Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation’s grant selection committee will review the Letter of Intent and advise an applicant whether or not they are invited to submit a full proposal.
The full proposal is the second step in the application process. The deadline for submitting a full application is Friday, April 11, 2014 at 4pm CDT. Incomplete applications will be denied funding. Complete and accurate proposals will be reviewed by the Foundation’s grant selection committee and the committee will make recommendations for funding. If required, additional documentation may be requested from the applicant.
The evaluation of the proposal is based on the following criteria: relevance to the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation’s mission, community need, accessibility to underserved youth, sustainability, innovation and accountability.
Funding is contingent upon the timely receipt of a satisfactory and complete full proposal as well as foundation board approval. Available funds are contingent upon the Foundation having sufficient working capital (as determined by the Foundation in its sole discretion). Once funding decisions are made, each applicant will receive a letter indication whether the grant application that they submitted will be fully or partially funded.
The grant applications that have been deemed funded will receive a package which includes a grant agreement that contains the terms and conditions of the grant as well as a final report. Once executed, the grant agreement is to be returned to the foundation. Subsequently, the first payment of the grant is issued. A grant will not be awarded until the grant agreement is executed. In the case of grant extended over multiple years an annual and final report must be submitted to the Foundation. Payments are withheld until the grant recipient submits a complete progress report to the Foundation.
