Grant Application Procedure
A two-step process is followed for all applications.
- All applicants, whether prior grantees or not, must submit the completed application form as well as a Letter of Inquiry. The letter should be limited to no more than two pages and must contain a brief statement describing your need for funds with enough information for SAFE to determine whether your application falls within our program area.Letters of Inquiry will be acknowledged upon receipt, however due to the fact that SAFE operates without a professional staff, a more detailed response may be delayed. The response may result in a denial of the request if it is unlikely to result in a proposal SAFE would be able to support.
- Upon a positive acknowledgment of the initial application form and Letter of Inquiry, a formal Grant Proposal should be submitted. Your proposal should be in outline form, responding to the questions listed in the Grant Proposal Requirements. Although tightly written proposals are preferred, you should take the space you need to make your case.
