How Does Sub-Granting Work?
Every year, we call for grant requests. Then we evaluate projects put forth by qualified nonprofit organizations and make awards on a matching basis. The understanding is that these grants are not intended to be the sole source of support for any group or project.
Believing that a rising tide of support lifts all, SETAC never intends to redirect local giving or interrupt financial gifts that individuals or businesses make directly to local organizations. Rather, SETAC serves as an adjunct to established giving programs.
Step 1 - Download Forms and Instructions
Download the Application and Application Instructions below. If your grant is approved you will be asked to provide an Evaluation Report Form, which can also be found below. The instructions contain examples of what is required. Contact us if additional details are needed.
Step 2 - Completing the Application
The deadline for sub-grant applications is the May 1 by 5:00 p.m. Remember to include audio/visual information about your event. Such information can be presented as a video, a Powerpoint, examples of advertising materials, etc. Submit all audio/visual materals to firstname.lastname@example.org . For large files it may be necessary to use services like Google Drive or Dropbox. If you have questions, contact us at 409-835-2787.
Step 3 - SETAC Review
From May to June, the SETAC staff checks the applications for eligibility, accuracy, and completeness. If necessary attachments to the application are missing, or if additional information is required, the submitting organization is contacted.
Step 4 - Grants Review Panel
During June the SETAC Board of Directors begins to review the applications received from area groups. Final approval is made by the board in July.
Step 5 - Funding
Funding of all approved grants begins October 1st.
If you have received aid from SETAC before you may be expecting a more rigorous process but we've simplified it significantly. Download, fill out the application, and turn it in. You will be informed of the status of your application following the review. Those awarded funding will receive further instructions at that time.
