  2. May I apply for a grant during either cycle?
    Yes. HFL gives applicants the flexibility to select the grant cycle that works best for their organization and project/program.
  3. Is there a limit to how many grant applications we can submit per cycle? Per Year?
    HFL suggests no more than two grant requests per year per organization. These requests can be submitted during the same grant cycle or one per cycle.
  4. May I apply for a program that has received HFL grant funding in the past?
    Yes, unless your project/program just received funding in Grant Cycle 2 of 2020. In that case, you should wait to apply again until Grant Cycle 2 of 2021.
