Grant amounts vary considerably and depend on many factors. Some important considerations include the applicant organization's program budget, the consistency of the program goals with the Fund's priority areas and strategies, and the amount of support the program is receiving from other sources.
In recent years, the median grant award for proposals in Colorado and Wyoming was approximately $75,000.
