The FY20 grant program guidelines will be made available soon on the our website. CAH utilizes an online grant portal to receive applications. If an applicant requires assistance with online access they may contact the agency for support. All applications must be submitted online by 4:00 pm on the deadline date. Incomplete or late applications, or applications which do not follow the instructions, will be ineligible for review and funding. The grant period is from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020. Grant funds may not be used for activities that occur outside these dates. CAH will not accept mailed, emailed or hand-delivered copies of grant applications unless approved prior to the grant deadline as a reasonable accommodation request from applicants with disabilities. To request a reasonable accommodation, contact Kali Wasenko at 202-724-5613 or [email protected].

In preparation for the grant application process, CAH staff provides applicants with one-on-one assistance related to their grant applications during “open hours”. Walk-ins are welcome.
CAH staff members are also available to discuss strategies that might help showcase the applicant’s activities in the best possible manner. These appointments are 30-minutes in length and hosted at the CAH offices up to one week before the deadline, as schedules allow. CAH encourages applicants to contact the appropriate program manager well in advance to schedule, and send a draft proposal for review in advance of the meeting.
