• Submit your request well in advance of your event. Requests are reviewed on the 15th of each month. Requests made after the 15th of the month for the following month will not be considered. For example, if your organization is requesting support for an event on January 30, you must submit your request by January 15 at the latest to be considered. We give equal consideration to all eligible requests, and cannot expedite or make exceptions for requests made after the deadline.
