Grant Application Process Overview

Preparing and Submitting Your Grant Application

Submitting your grant application for consideration by the Johnson County Recreation board is fairly straight forward.  If you've created an application before, be sure to use the same login to create your new application(s).  If you haven't used the site before, create your login.

As shown below, after you've logged in, you will create your grant application, then, if your organization requires, you use the software to send your application to your designated sponsor for approval, and finally, electronically sign and submit your application by the designated deadline for the fiscal year.

After Submitting Your Application

After your application is submitted, the Johnson County Recreation District Board will assign a presentation date and time (generally, your assigned presentation time will be 15 minutes or less).  During this presentation, you will demonstrate why your project should be funded.  

If your application is approved for funding, you will be notified on how to receive funding, and if accepted, you will be required to submit both a status and final report during and/or after the project completion.  Failure to do so may result in disqualification for future consideration by the Johnson County Recreation Board.
