The $200,000 matching grant giveaway program is being received with huge excitement everywhere. Veterans Service Organizations, civic groups and many others have contacted us with great enthusiasm for participating in the program.
Along with the interest has come a very consistent concern about the short time available for participants to identify, plan, organize and submit projects for matching grant consideration.
The consistent request for more time to ID and prep project submissions makes tremendous sense to the program sponsors.
In response we are happy to announce that we are extending the submission deadline from November 11, 2016, all the way to June 15, 2017 (midnight EDT)
We are reworking the whole program schedule now, but our goal is to honor all the submissions over next summer and to announce the winning grantees on Veterans Day 2017, giving everyone a year to complete their projects.
