Community Innovation Grant



Bush foundation logo

Headwaters Foundation is proud to partner with the Bush Foundation on the Community Innovation Grants, which support communities 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. 

Applicants can request the amount needed for their Community Innovation project, within the $500 to $10,000 range.

We look to you to identify and define your community. For example, this could be a geographic community (e.g. neighborhood, town, state, or Native nation) and/or it could be a community of common interest and/or racial/cultural identity.

We stronly encourage all interested organizations to review the guidelines and criteria, application questions, and required attachments before applying.

Applications for the next round of Community Innovation Grants will open on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018 at 9 am and close on Wednesday, May 16th, 2018 at 5 pm. We encourage all applicants to submit their materials in advance of the deadline.
