Our District 6290 Grants Committee meets monthly throughout the Rotary year. Except for the November meeting in Cadillac, the committee meets at 9:00 a.m. via conference call the 3rd Thursday of each month, unless there is no pending business. The purpose of the monthly conference calls is to discuss any global grants submitted by the first of the month and/or other committee business. The purpose of the November meeting is to review annual district local and international grant requests, as well as any global grant requests submitted by October 15 of each year.
During the monthly conference calls and November meeting, we ask at least one Rotarian from each Club that submitted a grant request to participate via conference call to briefly explain the grant request and answer any committee questions. The Grants Committee will approve, approve with stipulations, or deny the grant requests at the end of each meeting. The Grants Committee will notify applicants via phone or email of the committee decision at the conclusion of the November meeting.
