The Verdant Health Commission welcomes community groups and organizations interested in applying for grant funding to participate in a question-and-answer session on Monday, Oct. 11 from noon-1:30 p.m. on Zoom. Verdant will accept applications for funding from Nov. 8 to Nov. 19 at 5 p.m. The optional Q&A session on Oct. 11 is open to the public to learn more about Verdant’s priority areas for funding, gain insights into Verdant’s geographical service area, understand the application process, and ask questions.
Verdant’s application process is changing for this new funding cycle from Word and Excel documents submitted via email to a web-based grant portal system. This system will be demonstrated live during the Q&A session, which will be recorded and posted on Verdant’s website following the session.
