Before applying for Cinereach’s support, we encourage you to become familiar with our Priorities & Guidelines. Our FAQs address common questions about eligibility and more.

When a grant cycle opens, applications are accepted through an online form called the Letter of Inquiry (LOI), at Cinereach’s online application center. Applicants register to create a profile, or log into a previously created one, and submit all applications through one profile. Applicants may apply with more than one project, but each project requires a separate submitted LOI.

After Cinereach reviews all submitted LOIs, we invite a selection of applicants to submit a Full Proposal with more project information and materials. Further instructions for doing so are provided only upon invitation.

After Cinereach reviews all Full Proposals, our grants committee meets to make final selections and assign award amounts.
