How to apply for CPB funding?

This Prezi explains the application process for CPB. We expect all applicants to fill out our GoogleForm by 5PM on the Friday before your proposed Wednesday hearing and inform Sintayehu Taye (smt4n)  when they have finished. He will be in touch regarding the next step once he has reviewed your application and confirming a hearing time. Please only submit a proposal if your event is OVER TWO WEEKS AWAY from the date of proposed Wednesday hearing, assuming you apply by 5PM the Friday prior. Otherwise, we will not have adequate time to address your application.
