Types of Grants
The Strengthening Communities Initiative offers two types of grants: Small Grants and Capacity Building grants.
Small grants of up to $2,500 are awarded to nonprofits for a one-time community development project, preferably to support initial work that will lead to a future capacity-building grant.
Capacity-building grants can be requested for up to $18,500 for an 18-month period. Community-based nonprofits must partner with a tenure-track faculty member in order to apply for these grants.
