Grant Process

Thank you for your interest in applying for a CARMA Grant.

Grants are allocated once a year, typically in December.  Our application process begins each summer when RFP (Request For Proposal) letters are sent to organizations expressing interest in our grants.  RFP letters include an information form for the organization and an application requirement list.  This list details all the items that must be included in every application for funding.  Please note that CARMA only grants funds to 501c3 non-profit charities designated by the Internal Revenue Service.

If you would like to receive a RFP letter for 2016 please fill out the contact form on this website and indicate your interest in a CARMA Grant.  Your organization will be placed on our mailing list.  A tentative RFP schedule appears below.   Please feel free to contact our office with any questions.
