Application Timeline

Attend a Grantseeker Orientation Session

Before completing your grant application, please attend a grantseeker orientation session. We host these meetings in the month before each grant deadline to assist grantseekers in preparing their applications and to answer questions. Each session will cover how to apply and what to expect after submitting an application. Check back here for dates and locations.

One-on-One Assistance

If you need additional help after attending an orientation session, one-on-one assistance  is also available through the Neighbor Up Action Clinic by calling 216-361-0042.

Complete the Application

New application coming soon in January 2019!

Grant Making Committee Review

After the application is submitted, it goes to the Grant Making Committee. The committee is made up of Cleveland and East Cleveland residents. They review each application and determine which applicants to interview. Because of the volume of applicants, they can only interview the groups that meet the basic criteria.


Interviews are conducted at convenient locations in Cleveland and East Cleveland neighborhoods. Up to three individuals may attend the meeting. Groups will have time to talk more about the ideas presented in their application, and will answer questions from the committee.


Groups will be notified approximately 10-12 weeks after submitting their application whether they received funding.

Grantee Orientation

Groups chosen to receive funding (and their fiscal agent, if appropriate) will be required to attend an orientation session providing assistance with the project’s implementation.

Final Report

Within a month after grant activities are completed, grant recipients will be expected to provide a report on their work.
