Competitive Grant Programs 

In addition to the Foundation’s Discretionary and Catalyst grant programs, AAF administers multiple competitive grant programs.  The competitive grant programs are independent of each other and independent of the Discretionary and Catalyst grant programs and their requirements.  Each competitive grant program has its own eligibility criteria defined in the Request for Proposal (RFP) page for that competitive grant program.  Eligibility requirements for the Foundation’s Discretionary and Catalyst grant programs, such as having an open grant, do not impact the eligibility to apply to a Competitive grant program.  Organizations that apply for Competitive Grant Programs must be eligible to receive grants from AAF.
