What are the two types of Consumer Involvement Fund programs that are available?
The Consumer Involvement Fund has two types of funding programs:
INDIVIDUAL FUNDING (CIF Individual Fact Sheet) (CIF Individual Application)
$400 per year, per person for In-state events
$1,000 per year per person for Out-of-state events
ORGANIZATION FUNDING (CIF Organization Fact Sheet) (CIF Organizational Application)
The Council will determine the amount of funding based on the number of applicants for the event, the location of the event, and the availability of funds allocated for the month.
The Council’s Consumer Involvement Funds can only partially fund the cost of attending an event. The Council requires persons wishing to receive Consumer Involvement Funds to secure partial funding from other sources, such as other state agencies, private foundations, consumer or advocacy organizations, an employer, use of his/her own money, or time match.
