Application Process: The application for this grant requires basic information about the funding you wish to receive and the level of impact that would be made possible with the funding. A W-9 form is required in the application as well, as this form will be necessary for any applicants who are awarded funding to receive their funds. CHS Seeds for Stewardship is a competitive grant program and funding is not guaranteed to all applicants.
Following the application review process, all applicants will receive notice on the status of their application and any follow up items that are required. Funding recipients will be asked to schedule a time to take a photograph for use in promotions.
