Granting Cycles


Beginning with the 2022 Cycle One, the CHMF application process will change as follows:
Letter of Inquiry will only be accepted during a two-week period. 

Cycle One:  January 2-January 16 by 11:59 pm ET
Cycle Two:  July 1-July 15 by 11:59 ET 

Grant applications in each cycle for consideration by the CHMF Board will be limited to the first 100 applications received that are correctly completed and have the proper documentation. At this time, we are not limiting the number of Letters of Inquiry.

There are two granting cycles each year:

Granting Cycles for 2022 and Beyond

 Grant Cycles Starting with 2022 Cycle One

We will no longer be contacting organizations whose application is incomplete for the correct information. The applications must be submitted as complete with all correct documents included.


There are no changes to the granting cycles calendar, funding, or application process due to COVID-19.

Note: CHM Fund cannot pay for expenses incurred prior to a request being approved. Therefore, requested grant period must begin AFTER CHM Fund Board of Directors meet to consider the request.

Our mailing address has changed. Please update your records.
