Grants are awarded on a first come, first served basis. We award grants for projects in Eastern Iowa. In the past, we have typically awarded funds to projects for shade structures for use in public areas such as schools, ballfields, and parks, but we are interested in supporting any project that increases sun safety and awareness. Funds will be disbursed after completion of your project. The requesting organization will be required to purchase and display prominent signage indicating the support of Outrun the Rays within 2 months of project completion, and the design and location of the signage shall be approved by Outrun the Rays.
