Applications were pretty easy to fill out. Seems a little redundant when they ask for a budget and then what the money is spent for they seem to be the same to me.

The E.D. is very approachable. The Board Members are very connected people to Rock Island. Don't ask for too much, their awards are generally not real large.

Reviewer 4749 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

They need to understand that funding is tight and not all projects can be fully funded even though they are needed programs. I think it's important for people to do their research regarding what types of programs funders fund and average amounts.

Pros
