Grant Deadlines

Applications for Responsive Grants and Standard OCB Grants are considered three times per year. Deadlines are February 1, May 1, and August 1. When a deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the due date is moved to the following work day.  Funding decisions will be made approximately three months after each deadline.

OCB Flexible Fund Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year, and decisions are generally made within four to six weeks.

The Foundation has formally closed the Accessible Faith Grant Program.  If your house of worship is interested in making accessibility improvements, please contact the Foundation.
