2022-2023 DISTRICT GRANT APPLICATIONS
DEADLINE:  July 15, 2022
 
 
Is your Club interested in tackling a District Grant Project next Rotary year and receiving from $250 to $6000 in matching district grant funds? 
 
Your club needs to be qualified to participate, which requires that 2 members of your club view the Grant Management Seminar.  This year it is easy to do: simply view the 35-minute YouTube video at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iv9lWLPGUq8
 
Once complete, just report to your Club President AND Club President Elect that you’ve viewed the video (no quiz, no test !!); as part of the District Grant Application submission, they’ll be asked to attest that two members of their club have viewed the Seminar.  
 
The 2022-23 District Grant Application can be submitted from June 1 to July 15, 2022 and the application template can be found on the District Grant’s webpage.  If you have any questions, please e-mail District Grant Chair Kristi Halvorson at districtgrants@rotaryd5500.org.
