About the Grants:
Did you know that grants of up to $500 are awarded quarterly to sponsor health and wellness activities here at NWP? Grant funding is for group health and wellness activities such as yoga classes, healthy cooking classes, Zumba classes, and whatever else you can dream up to increase health and wellness at NWP. (Sorry, we cannot supply grants for purchase of personal equipment or apparel.)
1.) All grant proposals are reviewed on a monthly basis to make sure that they meet grant guidelines and appropriate laws/regulations. If there are some concerns on our part, we go back to the grant applicant and present the concerns so that they can resubmit the same quarter.
2.) All grants are presented to the Advisory Board in full, as written by the applicant.
3.) Members of the Advisory Board along with representatives from NWP Wellness review of the grant applications and answer clarifying questions.
4.) All members of the Advisory Board are then sent a survey to fill out.
5.) All surveys are then weighted and ranked, and comments are reviewed.
6.) The top three grant applications are selected, then reviewed to make sure they comply with all laws and regulations.
7.) The grant applicants are then notified of the decision.
