Dear grant sponsors:

Last month I wrote to tell you that all grant-funded travel planned for March and April was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, Rotary has extended its travel ban to every country. If your grant involves travel to another country, you will need to wait until this global travel restriction is lifted and make sure that your destination country is not still on the Travel Ban List then. I encourage you to check the list often.

Your regional grants officer is always available to answer questions. Stay safe and well.
