Deadline for Safety Net Application Process
Funding applications must be submitted via eCImpact by Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 at 4:00pm. No late submissions will be accepted. Prior to receiving access to the Safety Net application in eCImpact, an agency must complete the Intent to Apply process and be approved. If your agency applied for Community Impact Funding and passed the agency eligibility review, you will not be required to complete this step.
Safety Net Review Process
While all previously-funded partners are eligible to seek 2017-18 funding, they are not guaranteed a 2017-18 investment. All agencies will be assessed through a competitive review process. The review process will include review of the Intent to Apply and review of the funding application. An agency may be contacted if additional information or clarification is needed.
