We're accepting applications on an ongoing basis. The first 40 Easy Grant applications received each month that meet the entry criteria will be up for public vote. If your application falls beyond the first 40 received, we'll automatically include you in the next available month's voting period. We'll be in touch once your application progresses to the voting stage. You are invited to vote on a monthly basis for the community group you think should receive a grant. The six groups with the highest number of votes will receive $1,000 each. The remaining groups will receive $200 each.
