2023 Open Grant Round Updates

Our first 2023 grant rounds will be open January 9 through February 1. The Community Impact team will hold two virtual information sessions and one Q&A lunch hour to share our process and answer your questions. View event recordings.

We recently adopted a new grant portal called GranteeView for our grantmaking. The first time you use GranteeView, you will be required to register to become a grant administrator for your organization to apply for grants, track your application status, view payment history and more. Your organization may have multiple registered grant administrators. Registration is open now and we encourage all prospective applicants to begin this process early. Download registration instructions.

The grant application questions and list of required materials can be found on this page. Our hope is that sharing specific application questions and requirement materials in advance will give you and your team more time to compose an application that you feel best represents your important work. Our general focus areas remain unchanged, and you will note that we made more application questions optional for this round. This is an acknowledgment that your time and effort are valuable.

Do not hesitate to email any Community Impact Grant Team member if you have questions or feedback. Thank you for the work you do every day to foster thriving communities across Minnesota.
