Areas of Interest
- Primary area of interest is the main mission of your organization or the program for which you are applying for a grant. As a rule, your primary area of interest should be defined by a distinct, measurable, sought-after goal of the services your organization or program provides. Use that goal with the area of interest definitions to decide how to classify your grant request.
- Secondary area of interest is another distinct, measureable, sought-after goal of your organization, program, or project. You may enter up to two (2) secondary areas of interest. Some things to keep in mind with secondary area of interest:
- Often programs that seek to provide one benefit will end up providing other benefits to their clientele, but unless your organization or program takes specific steps to pursue that side benefit, it should not be counted as a secondary area of interest. A child who receives food assistance will likely have better health, do better in school, and be a better part of their community, but if the food assistance program does not actively pursue delivering those other benefits, the primary area of interest would be “poverty” and no secondary area of interest would be selected.
