Does my organization need to have 501(c)(3) status to be eligible?

Yes. Your organization is required to physically have the actual letter sent from the IRS that indicates your filing status. If you are unable to provide one, you may use another eligible entity to apply for the funds on your behalf, but be sure to verify they have not used their 501(c)(3) status to accept funds from us within the past 12 months. That entity will be responsible for accounting for spending the funds.

How long does it typically take to make the decision and the checks to be sent out?

Typically, it takes three (3) months to review applications and distribute checks.

How often are funds distributed?

Tulalip Tribes Community Impact Funds are distributed four times per year – March 1st, June 1st, September 1st and December 1st.

How often can my organization resubmit?

You may resubmit as often as you would like until you receive funding.

How will I know if my organization has received funding?

A check will arrive in the mail with a congratulatory letter. No organization will be notified that did not receive funding.

If my organization does not receive funding, can it resubmit?

Yes, you may resubmit your application the following quarter.

When is the actual application due? Does it have to be in your office on the due date?

The application does not have to be in our office on the due date. If it is postmarked with the due date, it will be reviewed.
