Grants are awarded on an annual basis dependent on the KWA budget. There is no minimum or maximum amount, but grants generally do not exceed $10,000.

Working to meet the goals of KWA, grants may be used for a variety of purposes including program support, physical projects, or program development. Grants are not given for political activities, lobbying efforts, support for deficit financing, repayment of debt, non-charitable purposes, religious activities, or to directly benefit an individual or private enterprise.
