What is the Application Process?

  • Once the application has been received by the CIFC, the applicant will be sent an approval letter from the CIFC informing the applicant of the amount of the award or if the application is denied. Included in the award letter will be details for reimbursement of approved expenses and an acceptance form to be returned to the CIFC.
  • In order to receive partial funding from the CIFC, the applicant must meet the 25% match requirement. Examples of the match requirement are: volunteer hours, travel time, donated time/items, discounted fees/items, and any expenses paid personally.
