Info sessions

Late summer, BAC Grants offers Info Sessions across the borough. Attendance is required for applicants that have not been funded in the last two years. Because eligibility guidelines and application procedures may vary from year to year, all applicants are strongly encouraged to attend. 

Info sessions include an overview of the guidelines and selection criteria of the funding opportunities offered; a detailed explanation of the application process and the online application; a chance to meet BAC staff and other applicants; a question and answer session; and tips on writing a successful grant application.
