Thank you so much for all of the wonderful and inspiring applications for this mini-grant. It is incredible to see all of the work that is being done in the community and what you all want to do to better serve our LGBTQ+ population.

We received a larger number of applications than expected which has extended the date that we will announce who will be awarded mini-grants in order to devote the right amount of time to read through each application.
