Inner Club timing procedures for Grants
March The President of Louisville Rotary shall appoint a Community Grant Committee to review the grant proposals. 
April The Grant committee will work closely with the Treasurer to determine the amount of money to give as grants for the current calendar year.  The committee will suggest this amount to the club.
May During the May business meeting the club will vote on the amount.  The President will announce the number of grants to be awarded and the amount of each grant.  
June/July We will then advertise the grants via the Louisville Herald, Canton Repository and the Alliance Review.
Aug Sept From Aug. 1 through Sept. 30, we will accept grant applications.
Oct The Grant committee will reduce the number of applications for grants to a manageable number.  The club members will be emailed a PDF of the grant application finalists.  Paper copies will be available.
Nov At business meeting in November, the club will see the whole slate of finalists and vote for each grant they want awarded.  Upon approval of the club members, the President shall notify each organization of their grant award with a letter stating the amount of the award and terms of refund if not used!
Dec The Grant checks will all be written before December 20th of each year simply to keep the income and the expenses in the same accounting year.
