The grant application deadline is Monday, April 2, 2018 at 5:00pm. All applications must be submitted online and extensions will not be granted. Applications that do not align, are late and/or incomplete will not be considered for UWSWMN funding. All grant applications will be reviewed by a team of trained community volunteers who will make recommendations on funding to the UWSWMN board of directors. Grant funding comes from donations given to UWSWMN during its recent fund-raising campaign.
