The Committee is not required to award all grant funds in one school year and has been given authority to carry over funds into the next fiscal year should no projects warrant funding.
Committee members will receive, in advance of meetings, the applications meeting the criteria for consideration. All applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision or request for an interview within 14 business days of the meeting.
If your grant request is funded, release of funds will be contingent upon a meeting with the committee chair regarding dispersal of funds.
All funded projects are required to produce impact statements and a thank you note of appreciation. Pictures and videos would also be appreciated.
All Newmont funds will be deposited in a CCV Special Revenue Account which is subject to an annual audit. Funding then will be forwarded to the appropriate project. For some projects, ordering of item(s) awarded will be processed through CCV’s Financial Specialist.
Copies of all documentation including the application, supporting documents, check requests, checks, and written correspondence will be maintained by the Steering Committee.
