Grassroots Grants

Grassroots grants provides up to $2,000 for scholar stipends, travel expenses including meals and lodging, publicity, and certain other expenses connected with a project of limited scope.

Grassroots grant applications must be submitted using our online application system by the first day of the month to be considered for funding during that month’s funding cycle. Applicants are required to submit proposals for projects which begin no less than 8 weeks after the first of the month submission deadline. Grant awards are usually made by the begining of the following month. For example, a proposal submitted on September 1 will receive a funding decision by October 1 for a project that begins no earlier than November 1.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high demand, funding for this program has been expended for the current fiscal year. The Council will begin accepting new grant applications for the January cycle. Please check back for exact due dates in the fall.
