Granting Cycles


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.

Cycle One:  Second week in January: Monday, January 8, 2024 starting at 8 am 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 10, 2023 starting at 8 am ET through Friday, July 14, 2023 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:
