Grant History

The Committee will not ordinarily award grants in excess of $10,000. The Committee may make a few grants of up to $15,000; these are intended for new programs or new initiatives so the recipients will normally be first-time grantees. Past total awards are as follows:

  • $448,500 (FY2018)
  • $480,000 (FY2017)
  • $467,940 (FY2016)
