After reviewing the links, consider:
- Is your organization ready to apply for federal funding? (The process is complicated.)
- Do you have an existing program or a developed concept for a new activity that would fit within the guidelines?
If your answer to both questions is yes, consider asking MFH for MoCAP assistance with this or other funding applications that would secure new funds for Missouri (federal or private). Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include all your contact information and ideally a draft concept paper or project outline in your correspondence.
