Grant Cycle Finalists

The 2021-2022 Effing Grant Cycle selection process is well underway, as we’ve arrived at the finalists round. The Advisory Council is currently evaluating these applications, as one of the final steps before the finalists’ projects are presented to the Board of Directors. We truly have some amazing projects that speak to the diversity, creativity and power of the communities we serve and we can’t wait to see who this cycle’s grant recipients will be.
