HCBF will adopt a Letter of Interest model for its fourth round of Community Benefit Grants.
In the past, HCBF has awarded grants by releasing a Request for Proposals. This model required applicants to complete a full grant application, in response to an RFP, with Staff providing feedback after recommendations were made to the Board of Directors. In Round 4 of Community Benefit grants we will be releasing a Request for Letters of Interest (LOI). An LOI is a two page summary of your proposed project or program that will help HCBF tackle Port impacts. The LOI model will lower the barrier of entry and allow Staff to provide feedback prior to an applicant being invited to submit a full application.
