Hi Skye and Pamela,
Thanks for reaching out. Upwork will notify selected clients using the email address included in the application and provide you with a copy of the Grant Agreement. We plan to review applications on a rolling basis and let applicants know whether they have been awarded a grant (or not) as soon as possible. See the program’s terms and conditions here.
I submitted a grant proposal on May 4 and received an acknowledgement, but I have not received any follow up email after that. Looking at the submitted proposal (at upworkcovid19.zendesk.com) it says "solved". What does that mean?
Thanks for reaching out. Due to the high volume of applications, we are not able to give status updates. When you submitted your application you should have received a confirmation of receipt. And we will let you know whether you have been awarded a grant (or not) as soon as possible.
Thanks for your question. We’re looking to support projects with missions directly tied to mitigating COVID-19. No project is too big or too small to have a meaningful impact. We are still accepting applications from businesses and nonprofits globally. Grants will be distributed on an ongoing basis until all $1 million (USD) in funds are awarded.
