Supreme Council Extends Lodge Grant Program For Second Year

The Supreme Council has extended the Lodge Grant Program for a second consecutive year, dedicating funding of $1,000,000 in renovations and repairs for lodges in need for 2018-19. Originally, the Grant Program was scheduled to run for three years with the final projects being completed in 2017; however, after examining the overall success of lodges who had participated in the program, the Council decided to extend the program for a second additional year.

Lodges can begin applying on July 18th, with the final date for submitting an application being the close of business on August 17th. No extensions will be granted. The process will be the same as last year, with access to the application appearing within the Moose Admin section on the website starting July 18th.

Attendance at the 2018 International Moose Convention is still required. Those lodges that are considering applying for a grant but have not yet made convention plans can still take advantage of early bird rates up until June 8th. After that date, full convention rates will apply. At least one representative from the lodge needs to be scanned into an official meeting at the New Orleans convention to qualify for the program.

On all grant applications, please make sure to include specific costs from bids received from contractors or service/product providers. Lodges should start gathering bids prior to July 18th in order to be ready for the application process. Complete guidelines for the 2018-19 Lodge Grant Program can be found in the Programs and Events section.

Lodges that have previously received grant money through this program are still eligible for grant consideration. All projects must be completed by June 30, 2019.
