If my electronic Grant Application is declined, will you explain why it was rejected or critique the proposal?

Due to the large volume of grant inquiries we cannot discuss with applicants the reasons for declining a request or to provide individual critiques of proposals we decline. Because the AFJ has limited financial resources, we are able to fund only a small percentage of qualified applicants. This means that many excellent projects, even ones that fall within our areas of interest, may not be funded. Please understand that a rejection of your Grant Application does not mean that the project lacks merit.
