Thank you for your interest in applying for Summer Fund funding. Proposals are submitted on an annual basis and reviewed by members of the Summer Fund Advisory Committee and Summer Fund staff. Grant awards are disbursed at one instance per year, typically in June, contingent on funding goals being met.
The maximum General Operating Grant to first-year recipients is $7,500 per site. First-year recipients may also request Mental Health Grant Program funding and/or Homeless Campership Fund slots, and those proposals will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Current Summer Fund grantees may request up to $40,000 per site in General Operating funds, but not more than 25% of the camp/program operating budget (30% for multi-site programs).
