  1. Name, date, and title of requestor. Also include what department you work in at RFISD and what Expense Period you are applying for.
  2. How many students or staff will benefit from being awarded this grant. Please refer to our website (www.therfef.org) under the “Purpose” tab and explain how this request aligns with the RFEF.
  3. Have monies for this particular event/item/etc. been requested through other channels? ie. are there other organizations/grants/contests you’ve requested this money from? RFEF monies will be returned back to the RFEF should these requested funds be awarded to the requestor from another source prior to being expended.
  4. Have your department head/chairperson sign this request, verifying that these funds are not available through previously awarded RFISD grants that are currently being expended.

Following expenditure of grant monies, please send a brief after action report to the RFEF by the established deadlines to include impact of receiving this grant.
