Minnesota Microgrant Partnership Application Tips

Tips for completing the Minnesota Microgrant Partnership application:

Application must be complete prior to submittal. You may begin the application and save your answers if you cannot complete the entire application at one time.

Competitive grant applications will:

  • Be innovative. Innovative relates to how the applicant lives, works or interacts with others. One example is hiring a job coach.
  • Be sustainable. Sustainable means that the goal or project is maintained at a certain level. For example, funds used to purchase tools or uniform for work contribute to ongoing employment.
  • Be measurable. A measurable goal has an end result which demonstrates that the recipient’s life has improved with the help of the micro-grant funds.
  • May prevent a negative outcome. An example is if a grant applicant were at risk of losing their job if they did not receive transportation assistance.
  • Have a realistic budget.

We are unable to fund conferences, vacations, out-of-state travel unless it is for employment, or camps.

Applications may be submitted by or on behalf of an individual. Organizations are not eligible to receive funds.

Funds will not be paid to directly to the individual applying for the grant.
