TransMission maintains a secure database of award recipients and amounts awarded. TransMission operates with a capped amount per community member, currently set at *$500*. Total lifetime awards are not to exceed this amount. Therefore, if you are applying for $275 this cycle and are in need of funding again in the next cycle, you may be awarded up to your remaining capped amount. This capped amount may change depending on funding availability. The LOFT reserves the right to increase/decrease caps based on funding and applicant interest and are not liable or obligated under previous set limits.
Applications found to be presenting fraudulent or misleading information will result in permanent exclusion from this program.
