All applications deemed eligible for funding will be offered a live interview (via phone or zoom for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis), preferably with at least two grantmaking committee members who have reviewed their application. Based on the combination of the application review and interview, those committee members will make a recommendation, with supporting explanations:
- Fund fully
- Fund partially (with suggested amount)
All the applications reviewed in any grant review period will be aggregated for final review and fund distribution on the final day of the review cycle. The committee will make final funding determinations at the end of each review cycle based on the following:
- Committee recommendations
- Funds available for distribution
Once the committee has reached final funding decisions for the grant review period, applicants will be notified, and funds will be sent as quickly as possible. We understand that, in our current circumstances, time is of the essence, and will make every possible effort to make timely and responsive funding decisions for the good of our music community.
