We recognize that applying for a grant of any size can generate multiple questions. To help, we have developed a list of the most frequently asked questions. This list will be updated as we receive more questions, so please be sure to check back to our website throughout the application period.
To submit a question, please email our Program Director, Jeanette Marshall, at Jeanette.HN@HTPBC.org.
Q: How do I submit my application?
A: The application is a “fillable” form. Simply type your responses in the blue boxes with instructed word limit. You can email it directly to us from your computer by clicking “SUBMIT” at the end of the application or use the “save as” function in the tool bar and email as an attachment, to HNminigrant@htpbc.org.
