Community Innovation Grants
The Community Innovation Grants Program awards funding to nonprofits working to create effective, equitable, and sustainable changes in communities. For fiscal year 2021, the selection criteria has been simplified to focus on impact and equity, and proposals that address critical and urgent community challenges will receive priority.
Examples of past projects include:
- Innovations in rural child care
- Community-level programs for children and youth
- Strengthening local food systems in rural areas
- Culturally competent health and wellness programs for tribes
- Violence prevention that focuses on men

Applicant organizations must be in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, or the 23 native nations that share the same geography.
