CIP Phase 2: Beacon and Spotlight Grants

On Tuesday, June 1, the applications for the $3,500 Beacon Grant and the $2,000 Spotlight Grant opened. The Beacon and Spotlight grants are available to every Lodge, and the flexibility that was introduced last year will continue. Plus, Lodges can merge the Spotlight Grant with the Beacon, increasing their Beacon Grant project budget to $5,500.

Applications close January 17, 2022, so your Lodge has time to identify local needs and apply for projects that will best serve your community.
