  1. If you are an individual or if you don't yet have experience with WMF grants, you should look at Project Grants.
  2. Applications are frozen in November and December each year, so if you need funding in January, you will need to apply by 1 November.
  3. If you need more funding, we suggest you look at the Annual Plan Grants through the FDC process.
  4. Committee decision may take longer for grants submitted 1 November.
  5. Larger grants will take longer for final approval.
