Beginning in Spring 2021, a brief Letter of Inquiry (LOI) must be submitted via our online grant portal prior to submitting a full proposal; in the past this step was optional. This new process will save the substantial time and effort organizations might invest in developing full proposals that ultimately are not closely aligned with RRF’s guidelines, funding priorities, and/or strategic approach.
The next LOI deadline is June 15th. All organizations submitting LOIs will receive feedback by mid-July. Invited organizations will be eligible to submit full proposals beginning in August 2021.
Submit LOI by: For the Following Proposal Deadline:
June 15 August 15
December 1 February 1
March 15 May 1
LOIs will be accepted no later than 11:59 PM (CT) of the deadline day. If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, proposals and LOIs will be accepted as late as 5:00 PM (CT) the following workday.
