  1. Develop your application utilizing support from your technical assistance advocate.
  2. Submit your application.
  3. Applications are reviewed initially for completeness and eligibility.
  4. Incomplete applications will be immediately rejected, however, our technical assistance team is available to help you understand missing items and resubmit your complete application. 
  5. The application window will close after one month.
  6. If your needs assessment project is eligible, your application is complete and there are available funds, you will move on to voucher execution and reimbursement training.

NOTE: Per the “first-come-first-served” process, if the total amount requested on day one does not exceed available funds then applications will be reviewed and funds will be awarded in the order that they were received. If the total amount of funds requested on day one, before 11:59 p.m. PT, exceeds the amount of funds available, then the applications received on day one will be randomized and reviewed in the new randomized order to ensure equitability.
