At any one time the StEPP Foundation may have a Request For Proposal (RFP) open for submissions. Deadlines and Specific Project Criteria will vary by the RFP #. We strongly encourage those interested in future funding opportunities to fill out the StEPP Project Submittal Form, even if there are no open RFPs listed or those listed do not fit your project idea or location. The StEPP Foundation funds many more projects outside of the RFP process, than within it. The StEPP Project Pipeline is used as a tool to best match projects with funding sources. In all cases, RFPs will only be open to projects in the StEPP Project Pipeline.
For those applicants who are responding to an open RFP, you must complete the StEPP Foundation Standard RFP (to download RFP, right-click and select “save target as”) and meet the Specific Project Criteria for the particular RFP # for which the applicant is applying. We strongly recommend applicants review Tips on Preparing StEPP Foundation Proposals, before beginning their submittal. In some instances Technical Workshops may be held to assist applicants with their submittals.
