The Gaming Grant - Ifny

Access grant deadline August 31st good grant because once you start getting it, it's easy to keep getting Look for “direct delivery programs” Ifny provided overview of what info would be needed for the application Ifny will email us a list of the kinds of details Where are we at for the next fiscal year budget, it would be needed for for the application Four representatives required for application: two officers (probably staff) and two directors Probably requires a separate account so the accounting for payments to a specific initiative is easy to track What about adoption class program: is this the initiative that we might pitch for funding
