PREPARING YOUR GRANT APPLICATION
The trustees of the Austin-Bailey Health and Wellness Foundation want to give your proposal the consideration it deserves. Your grant application is the most important stage in the Foundation's evaluation of your proposal. For this reason, you should address each question asked, specifically and completely.
The first step in the application process is to complete a "Grant Request Cover Sheet," which is available from the foundation office.

This information should give our review committee sufficient data to make a decision about the grant request. If not, we will follow up with a letter asking for clarification.
However, before attempting to complete any of the segments, please contact the Foundation's office by telephone at 330-580-2380. This could save valuable time in making your grant request. You will then receive specific instructions by mail to assist you in the process. Since incomplete proposals cannot be considered for funding, it is important that you follow the procedures outlined in our letters to you.
Grants are awarded twice a year. Application deadlines are June 20, 2013, and December 10, 2013. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. The Foundation's board of trustees meets in March and September to review grant applications. Applicants will be notified no later than thirty days after the board of trustees' meeting.
