Beginning with 2023 Cycle One, the CHMF application process will change as follows:
Letter of Inquiry submissions will be limited to the first 100 Letters of Inquiry received that are correctly completed and have the proper documentation included. Only those submitting in the first 100 complete and correct Letters of Inquiry will be invited to submit a full application. This is a change from the previous 2022 cycles where we limited the number of applications.
Beginning in 2023 Cycle Two, Letters of Inquiry will only be accepted during a one-week period. This is to avoid holidays and based on how quickly LOIs have been submitted.
Beginning in 2024 Cycle One, the registration time opening for Letters of Inquiry is moving from 8 am ET to 12 pm ET (Noon) to make it more convenient for those in time zones west of Eastern. The dates and 100 LOI cutoff is still the same.
Cycle One: Second week in January: Monday, January 8, 2024 starting at 12 pm (Noon) ET through Friday, January 12, 2024 by 11:59 pm ET or until the first 100 fully complete LOIs are processed.
Cycle Two: Second week in July: Monday, July 8, 2024 starting at 12 pm (Noon) ET through Friday, July 12, 2024 by 11:59 pm ET or until the first 100 fully complete LOIs are processed.
We will no longer be contacting organizations whose Letter of Inquiry is incomplete or incorrect documents are submitted in order to get the correct information. The Letter of Inquiry must be submitted as complete with all correct documents included.
There are two granting cycles each year:
LETTER OF INQUIRY & APPLICATION DEADLINES ARE FIRM.
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.
