True Patriot Love may accept grant applications for larger funding requests on a rolling basis. This process allows for the team to learn about new and promising initiatives across the country in real time and to directly support top priority concerns in a timely and effective manner.
Applications are reviewed in consultation with appropriate Fund Partners, the Disbursement Advisory Committee, and the True Patriot Love Board of Directors. Approval by the Board is required for grant disbursement. The Board meets once every financial quarter and reserves the right to accept, decline or amend recommendations.

The Disbursement Advisory Committee is composed of representatives from the military, academia, government and the community.
