FAQ for Active Regular Discretionary Grantees (not COVID response grantees)

You may request a project timeline extension if you think you may be able to complete the project activities by a later end date. You may also request a change in the scope of the grant project and/or a budget line item change request.  To learn more about these options, please contact your Program Officer.

You may submit a revised budget form request and include a written explanation regarding why changes are needed. Generally, budget items will still need to be allowable and allocable to the grant project.  Please contact your Program Officer to learn more about this option.

You may request an extension if you think you may need more time to organize data, prepare a detailed accounting of how funds were expended, and write up project outcomes.  To learn more about these options, please contact your Program Officer.

IMPORTANT: Before making any changes to your currently active grant and/or pending project proposal, you must receive written approval from the TGKVF program staff.  Once changes are approved, TGKVF’s Grants Manager will update the grant/application requirements in our system.

General Questions

Yes.  Whether working at our offices or remotely, our staff will be available to answer your questions.  Currently, email is the best way to get in touch with Foundation staff; however, we still access our voicemails.

In Phase I of our response, TGKVF supported emergency basic needs and health grants by approving grants on a weekly basis.  In Phase II of our response efforts, TGKVF is accepting applications on a rolling basis that focus on food access, healthcare, housing and shelter, the educational and safety needs of children, and arts organization support.
