What Happens Next?
When will my application be considered?
Applications for grants will be considered by the grant review panel between October 22 and November 20, 2016.
When your application has been assessed by the grant review panel, you will receive correspondence from us informing you of the panel’s decision. This correspondence may also identify additional conditions of the grant being allocated. You will also receive a grant recipient agreement which sets out the full conditions of the grant and the additional conditions. This agreement should be signed by the grant applicant(s), who will be receiving and utilizing the grant funds.
By signing the agreement, you are also agreeing to the conditions set out, and failure to comply with these conditions may result in the grants being reclaimed by the grantor.
The conditions include the timely completion of a final report with the required supplemental materials documenting that the project was completed within the terms and conditions of the Agreement. Final reports should include: a narrative report, a completed budget showing all actual revenues and expenses associated with the project, including the grant funds, copies of materials crediting Threadhead Cultural Foundation as a sponsor or contributor, and copies of print or other media coverage, such as news articles, calendar listings and reviews.
This information, which should be completed at the end of the project/activity, provides the grant panel and the Foundation with important information on how the grants are being spent. It also helps the Threadhead Cultural Foundation identify future priorities for targeting funding.
Before the Foundation will disburse grant funding to the grant recipients, the grant recipient must submit all invoices, receipts or other documentation to confirm that the funds were used to produce the Project. The Foundation may pay for submitted expenses directly, or may reimburse the grant recipient, depending upon the needs of each specific project.
At the discretion of the Threadhead Cultural Foundation, any portion of the grant funds not disbursed as set forth herein by December 1, 2017 may no longer be available to any grant recipients who are not timely in completing their projects. Grant recipients are encouraged to communicate frequently with the Foundation regarding any delays or other unforeseen circumstances that may postpone completion of their projects.
- No grant payments will be made until the signed agreement has been returned.
- It is the responsibility of the grant applicant/recipient(s) to ensure that the form is completed and returned within the designated time frame.
- Failure to provide the necessary information may result in the grant being reclaimed by the Foundation.
