The Grant Process

Below is a brief description on the grant process once an application has been submitted:

  • The application is received into the mailbox for PIFFF and must be postmarked by the due date
  • The application packet is opened and checked for completeness
  • All applicants receive an email that their application has been received and is moving forward for further review
  • At further review, the application is again checked for completeness and thoroughly read and reviewed
  • Application is passed on for financial review
  • Application is then put in front of Medical board for medical viability
  • Then applications are put in front of Board of Directors for final vote
  • Background check is run on applications voted on
  • Couple(s) are notified that are receiving grants
  • Once those couples accept, then we notify all other applicants of board decision
  • Please do not contact the foundation during the 6-8 week review process. The foundation is busy reviewing applications and will contact you if more information is needed. The foundation understands that this is a trying time for infertility patients, but know that we work diligently to make the selection as soon as we can.

This whole process does take the entire 6-8 weeks as we are an all volunteer board.  We do not take these decisions lightly and will not rush them.
