I’m in the middle of implementing my program / project. Can I still apply?

The purpose of these awards is to recognize organizations whose programs have demonstrated success. The nominated program has to have been active during the calendar year of the award title, or the year prior. (e.g.: The 2020 Innovations in Alzheimer’s Caregiving Awards will accept programs implemented and running in 2019 and / or 2020.) If the program involves a major culminating event, that event must have occurred prior to application deadline. If your program is active today because it is recurring, then it must have completed at least the first cycle or round of activity in order for it to qualify. Ongoing programs must have been active long enough to demonstrate some success.
