* The Transformational Project Grant amount will depend on the number of members in any particular grant cycle and will be announced in early January. Organization overhead allocated to a project (referred to as “Allocated Organizational Overhead”) must not exceed 30% of the Transformational Project Grant amount. For this purpose, we consider "Operating Expenses" to include: rent, insurance, utilities and other facility costs, general staff salaries, supplies and other expenses which are allocated to the project but which will be incurred by your organization whether or not the project goes forward.
