To help potential applicants conduct planning and market research to further their expansion strategy prior to applying for the NEXT Opportunity Award in March 2013, the NEXT Awards - through the generosity of the Kresge Foundation - is making a small pool of planning grants available to prospective applicants. Grants up to $20,000 per CDFI can support research or planning to expand a CDFI’s geographic or product coverage. Applications must be submitted by November 2, 2012.
An information session will be available on October 11, 2012 at 2:30 PM ET to learn more about the application process. Please e-mail [email protected] if you are interested in attending the information session.
