Staff are very responsive to inquiries and website with guidelines is up to date. I would recommend asking for a phone call with a staff member before submitting an request for capital funding - they were responsive to our questions and comments about the nuances of our proposed project.

Pros

The program officers are very responsive, feel free to contact them with questions. Also do your research, this funder is VERY specific (and somewhat unusual) with what they fund.

Pros

Over the years, it seems like they have become less interested in grants to pay for computers, so if you are interested in this, you have to have a compelling reason other than "our existing computers are old."

It was a very positive experience. Tell them why you need the funds if for infrastructure repairs, and whether it's urgent. And if you find out that it's going to cost more than you originally were quoted for the repair, tell them that.
