Four SRC members participated in Saturday’s District 7190 Grant Management Training program via ZOOM.
A minimum of two members’ participation was required for our club to be eligible to apply for district or global grants during the 2021-22 Rotary Year, so we are doubly qualified, thanks to President-elect Debbie Rodriguez and current club board members Bill Dowd, Phil Kellerman, and Roberto Martinez going through the training session.
The club will be discussing potential grant undertakings for the new Rotary Year, which begins July 1. In essence, all grant efforts are handled on a very tight time schedule, so Debbie and current President Dick Drumm will be working to be sure SRC is fully in compliance with all requirements.
There are different procedures and requirements for district and global grants. District grants go to individual clubs (sometimes two or three clubs cooperating on a single project), while global grants go to projects with both domestic and foreign Rotary clubs, and sometimes non-Rotary organizations, partnering in the initiative.
