New Applicants vs. Current Grantees

Is my organization a New Applicant or a Current Grantee?
Current Grantees are organizations that have been awarded Howard Gilman Foundation Cycle 1, 2, or 3 grants in the last calendar year. New Applicants are organizations that are one or more of the following:
have never applied before,
were declined after submitting an LOI or an application,
received one-time initiative funding or regranting funds from an HGF-funded regranting partner, or
have NOT been awarded a Foundation Cycle 1, 2, or 3 grant in the last calendar year.

Do I need to fill out an LOI or ITA in order to apply or reapply?
To simplify the process for 2022, we have removed the step of submitting a Letter of Intend for all new applicants and an Intent to Apply for all current grantees. Instead we will just accept applications. If you are a new applicant, you should register an account in the new grants management system, Fluxx. Current grantees (a current grantee is defined as an organization that was awarded a Cycle 1, 2, or 3 grant during the last calendar year) should update their organizational profile and contacts in Fluxx prior to applying. You can find more information about the application process on our Funding Process page.

Is my organization still a New Applicant even if it was previously invited to apply?
If your organization applied for funding but was NOT awarded funding, it is still considered a New Applicant.
