What We Fund
Our 2015–2018 strategic plan focuses on community health outcomes — specifically, greater opportunity for everyone in communities to achieve their full health potential, which would lead to greater health equity across Minnesota.
Funding opportunities are listed below.
Early Childhood Care and Education: Health Equity in Action
The Early Childhood Care and Education: Health Equity in Action funding opportunity has closed. Applications were due on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, at 4 p.m. Central Time.
We are currently reviewing applications. Finalist applicants will be contacted in May to schedule a site visit. Applicants who are not selected for a site visit will also be notified at this time.
Grant awards will be announced late June 2018.
Nonprofit Capacity-Building Grants: Management Improvement Fund
We have partnered with The Saint Paul Foundation to offer capacity-building grants to nonprofits across Minnesota through the Management Improvement Fund. Qualified nonprofits can apply for grants to support projects that strengthen organizations through strategic planning, program evaluation, governance, racial equity, financial planning and more. Only a small percentage of grant dollars in the state are dedicated to capacity building, despite high need and interest from nonprofits. We are pleased to help fill the gap through this partnership.
