OAKs are traditional grants that are submitted, reviewed and approved on an annual cycle. The cycle begins in January with CHF’s announcement of funding opportunity and ends in August when grants are approved.

There is not a specified budget limit but the average grant is approximately $100,000 for a two year project.
