These Phase II grants will be used to fund initiatives from their Phase I planning and research projects. In April, 120 non-profit organizations submitted Phase I proposals addressing five 2013 grant initiative topics. From these, 16 winners were awarded a total of more than $200,000 for Phase I project planning efforts. After planning and research, in-depth Phase II proposals were submitted and the above five Phase II winners were selected.
