COVID-19 and 2020 ACS Grants

Updates as of Aug 3, 2020


Spring 2021 Eligibility for Grants in Review

As a result of the impact of COVID-19, we are reviewing eligibility requirements for grant opportunities that will become available in 2021.  Any changes to the eligibility policy will be posted on by early November 2020.  The revised eligibility policies will be in effect for grant proposals opening January 1, 2021.

Fall 2020 Applications Will Not Be Accepted

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has made the difficult decision to not accept applications for the October/Fall submission and review cycle for grants that would start in July 2021. The decision comes as a result of the financial impact of COVID-19. Due to a significant decrease in donations during COVID-19, we will focus on supporting the applications that have already been reviewed and approved for funding.
