The grant application is similar to the Colorado Common Grant. There is enough character space for reasonable responses. There is not a focus on DEI, which is a bonus. The staff are very nice and you should probably give them a call before you apply.

Pros

Friendly, "Gets" nonprofits and issues

thank you for taking the time to provide feedback to us, it's really helpful as we continue to find ways to be more effective. your site visit idea might be more achievable with zoom, as site visits are always a nice way to really understand the program details and challenges beyond what the proposal discusses.
