Focus Area Committees & Grant Reviews

“The Focus Area Committees are the heart of Impact!” – Rowena Crawford-Phillips, Grants Chair

Impact 100 members may choose to serve on Focus Area Committees (FAC) to review grant applications and participate in a thorough vetting process that leads to recommending finalists. Interested volunteers are asked to complete a FAC Interest Form in May and are notified of their FAC placement by early June.  

The process of reviewing grant applications takes place between June and October, with one training session and three virtual meetings as well as site visits to selected applicants. Grant work culminates with finalist selections in November.

2022 Focus Area Committee Info Session

A FAC Information Session is held every spring for members who are interested in participating. If you have any questions about participating, please contact us at grants@impact100jerseycoast.org. Stay tuned to our member emails throughout the year for more information and the committee participation process.

If you are interested in being a volunteer but do not see a fit with these current opportunities, please contact volunteer@impact100jc.org
