New Mexico Small Grants Program
The New Mexico Small Grants Program will award funding to community organizations in New Mexico to make systems and policy changes and promote health equity.
Small Grants are not awarded to projects focusing on direct services. However, many organizations that provide direct services also promote systemic change through their work.
Projects that involve collaboration - particularly multi-sector collaboration (public and private, for-profit and nonprofit, and multiple providers and services) are highly competitive.
To be sure there is statewide representation, the Foundation divides the state into 6 geographic regions and makes sure that each region is represented in funding decisions. The Foundation is also actively trying to increase proposals from rural and underrepresented regions.
Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations located in New Mexico are eligible to apply.
Any organization working directly with pueblo or tribal communities/nations must submit a letter from those pueblos or tribes acknowledging support for the organization and the project that will be implemented.
Up to $15,000.
Projects with funding (including in-kind) from multiple sources are generally preferred.
