EDC Grant Application Process for 2022
The EDC is resuming our grant program for projects that support economic and community development in Woodstock.
The first step in the grant process for 2022 is to fill in an online Pre-Application . This short form will help the EDC better understand the pool of applications to be considered in 2022. A Pre-Application must be submitted by January 3 to be eligible to receive grant funding at the EDC's Annual Meeting.
Please note that no grants will be denied based on the information in the Pre-Application, and you may make changes to your project when you submit the final application. Final applications are due on February 28th.
The EDC will hold its Annual Meeting and make funding recommendations to the Selectboard on Saturday, March 12th.
While we expect to award the vast majority of our funds at our Annual Meeting, the EDC will consider grant applications on an exception basis after the Annual Meeting has been held. Grants submitted after the Annual Meeting has been concluded require a two-thirds vote of the EDC to be approved.
To better understand the types of projects the EDC looks to fund, applicants may want to refer to the documents that governed our last grant process in 2020 (grants were suspended in 2021 due to COVID). Please note that while we are currently reviewing the criteria by which we evaluate grants we will continue to use the existing criteria for grants awarded in 2022. Therefore, the documents we published in 2020 can still provide the guidance you need:
