Regional Development Authority Grants

NOTICE: RDA uses an online grant application.

Spring 2020 Grant Cycle: 

The grant application will not change for the spring and fall cycles of 2020. The RDA Board is working on changes for the 2021 grant cycles. We will post those changes and provide orientation sessions to communicate the changes in late 2020. Those sessions will be posted on our website in the Fall of 2020.

Apply and Report

NEW APPLICANTS: The first time you sign in to the system, you will be asked to register your organization and set up a password. After that, just use your log-in (your email and password) to sign in. Your grants history is visible in your account.

FOLLOW-UP REPORTS: For all grants you received in the Spring of 2017 or before, please use the old-fashioned paper reporting method and mail completed reports to us. Basically, if you applied on paper, please do your follow-up report on paper. If you apply online, you will do your final report online through the same online system.

GRANT AWARDS: Preliminary notification on recommendations for grant awards go out to all applicants before the Board meeting to approve the recommendations. Those dates will be posted here.
