The first step in our process is to determine if the project falls within the guidelines described above. Following receipt of this application, the funding request passes through preliminary screening and then to a committee for full review. The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust will review only one proposal per organization per 12-month period and only complete proposals will be given consideration. If you pass our pre-screening process and complete the application form, you can expect an email response within 22 — 24 weeks whether or not your project has been selected for funding. Please do not call or e-mail us during the review process, as we will be unable to provide any additional information or status. We appreciate your patience, as we received hundreds of applications during the annual review.
