This session takes place at the Headwaters offices in Minneapolis.

In 2020, Headwaters will offer Community Innovation grants (CIG) two times through an ongoing partnership with the Bush Foundation. The project-specific grants support organizations to use problem solving processes that lead to more effective, equitable, and sustainable solutions. This grant allows communities to increase collective understanding of an issue, generate ideas, and/or test and implement solutions. 

You tell us about your community. It could be a neighborhood, town, or Native nation. It could be a community of common interest, such as environmental justice. Or, your community might  be centered around cultural identity like transgender youth. You’ll also tell us about your community’s unique challenges and opportunities. Your organization’s proposed project should use inclusive, collaborative, and resourceful processes.

We will accept CIG applications online starting Tuesday, February 18. The deadline is 5 p.m. Central on Tuesday, March 17. Applicants will want to review the guidelines and criteria; application questions; and required attachments before applying. Information sessions are the perfect place for you to learn about the program and ask all of your questions!
