Last night People’s Liberty opened its doors to over 60 people who were eager to learn more about Project Grant VI. After the presentation we opened the floor to questions and here’s what the audience asked about the application process.
Q: Can you have more than one name on the application?
A: No. Only one person can apply and submit the application (you also can't submit multiple applications under one name). However, each applicant does have the opportunity to list team members on the applicaiton.
Q: After the grantee has been awarded the full $10,000 grant, does PL fund beyond that?
A: People’s Liberty will not provide any funds after a Project grantee has finished their project. However, we support each of our grantees through mentorship and networking, even if the project is finished. We meet with each grantee, or team of grantees, to talk about what’s next.
In the future each grantee does have an opportunity to apply for a larger grant with People’s Liberty, but there are some boundaries that revolve around that. If you have more questions about this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Who can apply?
A: To apply you must be 21 years or older, live within the 275 beltway, and your project has to take place within the 275 beltway. Please, read the grant guide before applying to make sure you are (and your idea is) eligible.
If you still have questions or just bummed that you missed the info-session last night, don't worry … we recorded the whole thing. You can watch it on our Facebook page here.
If you still have questions or just want to gather suggestions about your proposal, sign up for a twenty-minute 1-on-1 session with a team member here. The application for Project Grant VI is now open until Wednesday, October 4 at 11:00 a.m. GO APPLY!
